After 3-1/2 weeks of collecting and boiling maple sap the season is over. Total maple syrup processed into canning jars was 38 quarts. A new record for us beating last years record of 32 quart. One reason this year was better is we had 3 more taps in 2 trees than last year. Here is a photo showing how the late season syrup gets darker. The syrup may be darker, but it becomes more flavorful maple taste. If you have never had pure maple syrup this would be a real treat!
