We collected the sap from the walnut tree today! I posted the other day about our mission to learn all we can about being self-sufficient right where we are planted currently.
Now its time to pour into a jar. I use double layered cheese cloth to strain the syrup once again. This will assure you that all the grit is taken out of the syrup. Just let it hang out there for a few minutes and drip into a jar.
All-in-all this was a great experience. It is a lot of work!! But to me this is so rewarding I don't even think about the time it took to get from step one to final product. I cannot wait to try this on a warm biscuit or waffle. It has a nice nutty flavor. The experience was well worth the work. Our children learned valuable lessons through out this process. It was a fun family activity on using things that God has provided us.
