I think that the subject matter is very enlightening when it come to extracting sap from a maple tree. A very good seminar, but you be the judge.

So I am applying for this game show called wipe out. The grand prize is $50,000 so that will help us expand the sugar bush.

I think this is going to be great. Check out the video I submitted for it:

Hello Everyone

Recently I found an online video on how to make maple syrup eggnog. I seemed like a nice enough recipe but what really got me was the fact the presenter was using fake maple syrup.

I decided to dub over the real ingredients that she was using, enjoy.

Remember there is no substitute for real maple syrup!

I was listening to the point today on CBC and heard these crazy guys talking about affordable maple syrup for all Canadians. It was pretty good, some of the suggestions was to have a tax credit for maple syrup.

There is a serious reason that the price of maple syrup is so high, last year was a pretty bad year. A number of farms did not make much syrup and this caused there to be a decrees in supply, this in turn drove the price up.

Also people that don’t buy real maple syrup will not be really missing anything as they don’t value it at all. This reminds me of some friends’ kids who were visiting and decided to put real maple syrup on their pancakes rather than fake stuff. It was so sweat that they ending up throwing it out, what a waste.

It’s not that big a deal to buy maple syrup as it is not something you buy everyday. You buy a 4L juge and it can last you the whole year.

I could go on and on about this but I won’t as I think this segment of the program was put in to lighten things up, It has to be a joke.

So it has been a while since I have posted anything. I have been working on setting up my new computer system. I recently switched over to a mac from PC, something I suggest everyone do. When I was moving all my files from one computer to another I found some old pictures and videos from the 2008 syrup season.

I was going crazy with dial up, trying to upload a video took 8h or so. I found this video of my friend and I taking his new to him bombardier trail groomer for a ride through the bush. I am not sure what the model number is but it’s pretty kick ass. This year we have a new 4 wheeler I am sure that it is going to help us out the the bush, though I don’t think it could take out a tree like this.

  1. Beer is expensive
  2. Food is not worth the money
  3. Too many hipsters

But Than I saw this on the menu:

WOW espresso infused! I asked the waitress (with the heavy British accent) if it was real maple syrup? Yes it is she said, saying that she had received a lot of maple syrup as gifts during the holidays.  “O.K.” I said, “I’ll have the pancakes with “espresso infused maple syrups!”.

When the syrup came to the table I knew right away something was up:

Retail this would be about $6 and the colour, dark is an understatement. Totally NOT maple syrup, I hate that! I really should have known but I really wanted to see what “espresso infused maple syrups!” Tasted like. I know that “espresso infused Aunt Jemima!” does not look very good on a menu.  In it’s defense it was “infused” with something. From what I could make out they were small dots of something that were a bit crunchy.

So I did get something a bit different, I received “Coffee Grind Infused Aunt Jemima!”

The pancakes tasted like they were made from a mix too. I should have asked for my money back!

I have been working to create a new theme for this site and I think it looks pretty good. Word press is a very powerful and helpful tool for web developers. I want to put a bit more work into this site to see if I can keep it going all year. I found this fun little picture in my travels in cyber space.

Someone was not thinking when they put this picture together!

Running and evaporator efficiently is no small task, it may seem like nothing is happening but you have to keep things “dialed in” or you loose your fire, flood the pan or burn the syrup. I think Mike was the happier one of the two of us as he had been living in the sugar shack night and day for almost two weeks before we showed up.
