Maple syrup - Part 2

After hours of cooking down all the maple sap we ended up with one and half beautiful jars of golden maple syrup. We had some for lunch on pancakes and tonight on ice cream. Today we only got about a gallon of sap, compared to five yesterday, so we think the trees are going to be done. The season for making syrup is when it is below freezing at night and then warm during the days like in late February or March. Yesterday must have just been an odd temp combination that it was dripping off the trees.
