Boiling Sap to Syrup Begins

Today Ken began boiling maple sap to make maple syrup.
He collects sap in buckets.

When he has enough to boil, he pours the sap into a large flat pan called an evaporator.  As it boils down he adds more sap

He maintains the fire under the evaporator

He continue to monitor the fire and check the sap as it boils and becomes syrup.
