Making syrup from spruce shoots / granskotts – sirap

Yesterday Martin headed to the forest to collect som spruce / gran to make some syrup. Getting back home he started the process.  I´m enjoying more and more when Martin is working the kitchen. The process in itself interests me. This time though, I fell asleep in the middle of the process so two of the photos from the end result is Martins own, the third and the forth from the end. Enjoying that Martin now know how to use my Canon EOS M3, at least on fully automatic 😉 First time picking Martin thought he picked the wrong spruce (in Sweden we have toxic ones called idegran/ yew).
