Note the yoke. It is amazing.
We have one quart and one pint of birch syrup sitting in the fridge. It is so sweet and so so good.
We boiled it down in the crock pot, and on stove top pans. Both work. The crockpot requires less supervision but takes longer.
Next spring, we hope to have a cinderblock woodstove built in the yard with a ginormous pot or two for the boiling.
And if one of us ever learns to weld, we've got a great idea from the man who runs the brewing supply store. Weld stainless steel into a giant 100s of gallon vat, paint it in heat absorbent black paint, and set it up basically like a still, so it'll evaporate out the water by the (direct) power of the sun.
