This unusual machine sitting in my den is a reverse osmosis machine in the process of being built. It takes some of the water out of maple sap and makes the boiling time in the evaporator much shorter. When we ordered it, we were told that the maker was so backed up that he couldn't possibly have one ready for maple season (fast approaching!). We bought the kit and now it is being assembled in my den - with the accompanying mess!
Over the next few weeks and months, I promise, you will begin hearing more and more about maple season!
