It has been a good week for finding some free, useful stuff. First off, relating to my last post, Backyard Maple Sugarn’, we came across some great food grade buckets that will be used in about a month for collecting maple sap. One contained sweet and condensed milk, one had Bavarian cream filling, and the last one had organic peanut butter in it. A little soap and water will take care of any residual odors and flavors. Also we found two food grade plastic jerry cans at the local food co-op. They are about three and a half or four gallons and will be great for storing our sap in as we empty out full buckets. The icing on the cake (or should I say honey), is one of the plastic jerry cans still had about three-quarters of a quart of organic honey in it. My morning tea just got a little sweeter.
