A sweet thing in Spring

So this is the first batch this year of Syrup and candies this year. We have gotten 6 jars of Syrup and a dozen or more candies. It surely will not be the last of either item. Nothing sweeter than the first syrup and candy. We love it in hot Tea, Sap tea we call it dip your mug in the boiling sap and then throw in a Tea bag. You can reverse this by making tea and adding syrup.
Making candy we bring it to 28 degrees above boiling, then let it set for about 5 minutes , then stir like crazy and it magically goes from clear syrup to Opaque and then starts to crystallize and you have to work fast. Get it into the molds and let it cool! Eat and savor and enjoy!
Back to our little sugar Shack!
