One recent Saturday morning, Stroud seemed like the center of the maple sugaring universe. Nearly 30 people joined us to watch maple sap turn into maple syrup. We shared a delicious pancake and bacon breakfast cooked over an open fire. Officially, the short maple syrup season is finished, but it seemed like a very long process. After 2 months of collecting sap, 11 hours of boiling, and 2 hours of cooling, our 55 gallons of sap turned into 1.5 gallons of maple syrup. It is the most delicious syrup I've ever tasted. It was a wonderful process and we'll more than likely do it again next year.
Join us in June for a demonstration in Beekeeping. The Chester County Beekeepers Association www.chescobees.org will be on hand to explain the fundamentals of keeping a beehive (not the hairdo). Contact Brenda Engstrand at 610-353-5640 x243 or at email@example.com if you would like to attend. Hope to see you there.
