Photographer's Note

This is a traditional boiler in which maple water, very slightly sweet, is boiled until it becomes a syrup. One needs 40 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of syrup. There are 4 different boilers linked by a system of pipes. The water is first poured in the right boiler and then processed to the left, when density reaches accurate values. As you can see, the left boiler is equipped with a tap, allowing the syrup to go through a filter, last step before bottling or canning.

Unfortunately, photography does not allow the viewer to smell the deliciously sweet vapor produced by boiling.
