Once you have your tools ready, start by heating the sap in the pan. You don’t want to heat it too hot because it will burn and you don’t want to boil it either. You just want to get it hot enough that the debris will start to float to the top. Once you see this happening, use the glove to grab the debris and remove it from the sap. Be sure to keep an eye on the temperature of the sap as you do this because it will cool quickly if you take too long.
Once you have all the debris out of the sap, you can move on to the smaller items. This is where the tweezers come in handy. Use them to carefully remove any small pieces of debris that may be stuck in the sap. Again, be sure to keep an eye on the temperature of the sap as you do this so that it doesn’t cool too much.
Once you have all the debris removed from the sap, you can let it cool and store it for later use. It’s important to remember that the sap will solidify when it cools, so make sure you store it in an airtight container. This will help keep it from becoming too thick and difficult to work with.
