What a busy day! After tapping 33 trees yesterday, the students were busy collecting today’s sap. They never cease to be amazed at the amount of sap their trees produce. Later some of the students used a funnel, metal filter, and cheesecloth to filter unwanted particles from their collected sap before storing their sap in the refrigerator to keep it fresh until they collect enough for our upcoming boiling/evaporating day.
The middle school students and faculty would like to thank the kitchen staff for their support in this project. Without their help it would be very difficult to keep all of our sap fresh. Thank you!
