How we process and finish our pure, organic homemade maple syrup at home. Read the full article here: http://www.thedoityourselfworld.com/articles/article.php?id=11427
Homemade maple syrup is all natural and organic when it comes straight from trees in the forest that have not outside intervention. Nothing was added to the sap in the process. The only thing done was to boil off the excess water from the raw maple sap and then bottle the final product.
I haul the sap from the trees to Chris. Chris boils the sap down in the large boiler in the sugar shack. Then I bring the syrup to Melanie for the finishing boil and canning into sterilized glass jars.
Melanie boils the syrup until it reaches 7 degrees F above the boiling point of water. Then she filters it and pours the pure maple syrup into the heated glass jars.
The jars are capped off and left to slowly cool down at room temperature. Then they are put into a refrigerator until sold or used.
Pure maple syrup can last for years if kept cool and dark.
We will be selling some of our homemade maple syrup later when we figure out the prices. We will let our viewers decide what they want. We have syrup ranging from dark and thick to light and thin.
But it all tastes very good.

Hi Troy Melanie Chris Troy I would like to buy some of that great maple syrup there nothing like that sweet smell of boiling down the sap to maple syrup I used to help my grandfather it's time consuming I enjoyed every minute take care you all are doing a excellent job
Is Melanie sick again, tired or mad about something? Please take care of yourself Melanie. Are you eating the right foods now that you are with child. Have you been getting regular checkups with a Dr.? Sorry for asking so many questions but I'm just worried about you help and well being Tc God Bless PS I know it's stressful to move :(
Nice work! Doing great Melanie. I know you have a lot to do these days, but try and get some rest when you can. But also stay fit, it will help when it's time for the baby to come. :)
Oh, you too, Troy. ;P
Hi Troy missing your old style content I know you are very busy but would love to see more vids on the knew generator please don't think that I am moning you have probably got very good reasons for the lack of videos stay safe
Really looking forward to your new home and a new start I have been watching from the start and I can imagine it is a lot of work making money is going to be your number one priority know that little one is only two I look forward to the videos got bless xx
We are working full blast on maple syrup right now and I can only show you so much of that. There is not much time in the day for anything else. I am in for a warm up after hauling 60 gallons of sap. Then back out to haul more. We hope to make some money this year. We will split it with Chris for all the help.
The Do It Yourself World would it be possible to have Melanie's family visit during and after the pregnancy? I suffered with the same behavior/depression being without my family and alone with my first pregnancy. So much is coming at her all at once and it has to be overwhelming. Moving, trying to sell maple syrup, packing, a new baby etc a lot to take in.
Thank you. Just get some taps. Drill a hole to fit the tap. Gently pound it in. Then gather the sap. The rest is simply boiling it until you have syrup. My sister did this last year with her few trees and loves the stuff.
I hope Melanie is feeling okay she seemed very tired and quite. When is the little one due? are you going to find out if the baby is a boy or girl? I SO WISH YOU WOULD STAY ON YOUR LITTLE FARM. what a wonderful place to raise children.........Troy just build another room addition GOD's BLESSINGS
In response to Sassy.... Hey Sassy, cyberstalking, harassment, and libel are NOT constitutionally protected free speech! For those who don't know, Sassy is the dictator of the sucks forum. You are free to post your OPINIONS on your forum all you want. But when you make it your goal (also Doc's goal) to destroy every aspect of a person's life, both online and offline... That has gone too far. Just like when Doc threatened to go after Prepper nurse 1 and his family (see copy of Doc's comment below), sucks has been cyberstalking, and harassing Troy for over a year now. Hopefully Troy will be able to take legal action to put an end to it. Copy of Doc's threats against Prepper nurse 1 ......
*** "yep. some may want to sue him for money etc... but myself, i would rather just cost him his job, family, career, livelihood, honor, respect, integrity, and ensure no one EVER trust the fucker again. he will be like troy and have to live off the kindness of strangers through begging for the rest of his life if i have my way. and ive got nothing but time and spite to see it through. after all i have my own property and home paid off and im retired and nothing to lose because i do everything legally so ya cant sue me for anything. these trolls should know this by now. 3 of troys lawyers over the last 3yrs have tried and failed." ***
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
