HOME CANNING FOR HEALTH & FLAVOR
For three excellent resource links to learn all about Home Canning CLICK HERE and scroll down to the Canning section.

HOME MAPLE SYRUP PRODUCTION
Boiling Down:
  It is recommended that you build a simple outdoor stove for boiling down - it is not recommended to do (most) of it in the house, unless you like peeling wallpaper, sugar-laden steam condensation on everything in your house, or trying to clean overboiled sugars out of every nook and cranny of your stove when you get that phone call or the kid takes a fall, etc. 
There's a good chance one of these things will happen - for every gallon of syrup you make, about 40 gallons of water must boil off in to the environment; where will it all go? 
Check out the easy outdoor stove they show you how to make at this site: www.tapmytrees.com/coprsap.html
Another informative site: http://ohioline.osu.edu/for-fact/0036.html
Neither site talks much about why you should finish off the syrup in the kitchen instead of outdoors though.  Here's the scoop:  you need to VERY carefully regulate the temperature just before bottling.  Where we are, in the St. Lawrence River Valley, if it goes over 219 degrees, it will crystallize in the jar, and be a bit of wasted effort (not entirely, but not nice pourable stuff for your pancakes!) 
The idea is to get it up to 217, 218 degrees outdoors on a wood fire (which is harder to regulate the temp) and then move it indoors and "finish it" with a more easily regulated stove temperature, with the thermometer stuck right in it until you see it hit the magic 219; then remove from heat and bottle quickly.  If you accidentally go over 219 before bottling, no worries!  Add more sap and bring it back up to temperature.  (Adjust your boiling point for your elevation, of course.)

Thanks to Old Market Farm Hardy Roses (plus select northern-hardy berry bushes, fruit trees, hops and garlic) for some local "flavor" in writing this up!
