My Actifit Report Card: February 1 2022
Fire in the Hole!☺️
Day two of Maple syrup!🤗
Four plus hours yesterday, and another four hours today!😅
Silvertop is so very glad we bought this Turkey fryer!
Originally we were just going to give this a try with our old Colman gas camping stove.
That would never have worked!😲
In the third photo we switched to a stock pot. The nine gallons of sap had boiled down to about one and one half gallons.
Look at the golden color, and when we ladle out a sample it is becoming sticky!😊
We started to suspect that the glass hydrometer that we just had delivered courtesy of Amazon, was cracked!😲
Some people use a candy thermometer, and when the boiling temperature reaches 219 degrees Fahrenheit the Maple syrup is finished!
We also knew that 40 gallons producers 1 gallon of syrup.
Hmmm………Liz we are close!😇
Samples pulled were becoming much sticker, and definitely Maple syrup sweet to the taste!
Let’s call it Liz!!!!🥰
One more final filter through a cone coffee filter, and into sterilized mason jars!
This has been an awesome adventure!
The Maple trees have all but stopped flowing, I believe we are at the end of the season.
Next year we will be better prepared, with a candy thermometer, a new maple syrup hydrometer, and plenty of buckets!😇
We ended with two Mason jars totaling approx 28 ounces.
One we will freeze, Maple syrup doesn’t freezer burn, or 100% freeze, and keeps indefinitely! The second jar, I think Liz and Silvertop are going to enjoy on Belgium waffles and pancakes next weekend!🤗
“Liz I think we better plan for the LONG hike next Saturday Lol!🤣
Till tomorrow Silvertop Mike😊

Hi @silvertop, I see that you are using Actifit, and you are reporting regular. I'd like to invite you to join #POLIAC, it is some kind of tournament where 16 participants will compete every day for one month with each other in two duels who report more steps in the daily Actifit report.
From your side you don't need to do anything special, just post as usual your daily Actifit report, if you skip one or two nothing happen, you only lost your duel(s). Here you could see the final report from last season of #POLIAC, which gives you a picture of what is about. Cause still I have a couple of free slots for next season which starts on 1st March I'd like to invite you. If you agree, please just respond "yes", if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask me.
Excellent, stay tuned. Now I need some rest, running this tournament is time-consuming, but we are back in March. I will make an introduction post week before the start.
Looking forward to it let me know!!!😊
I enjoyed our adventure dear! It was fun and tasty! I'm looking forward to next year's adventure with my best friend! 🤗😘❤️
