Quick, take a look at today’s source! Now, what is he up to? Looks simple? Easy? No big deal?
NO WAY. The ancient, chemistry-filled process of going from sap to syrup is an expert’s craft. See those two other Vermont woodsmen trying their hand at syrup-making? They’ve failed! The guy on left didn’t evaporate enough out of his condensing sugar to hit the right mixture (leaving his syrup gross), while the guy in middle hit too much density, crystallizing the whole mix! Only our hero scored the right density of 1333 kg/m³, and can bring his amber-golden syrup to millions.
