Maple Sugaring, Part 5

Here is the final product - maple sugar. I used a small Gladware container and packed it into cakes. As it cooled and some of the remaining water the color lightened some. The yield from 24 fl oz of syrup was 13-1/2 oz of dry sugar. Allowing for losses that estimates out to about 2oz of dry sugar per gallon of maple sap. Most of this will get squirreled away for the challenge next January, but one cake has been sent out on a special delivery ;)
