Learned about some of the uses of Pine Pitch/ Tar/ Sap at Bushcraft this year so I decided to start making some. First me and the kiddos collected a 20 oz Cup worth of Pine sap from a local park ( Not many pine trees around..) As this project was unplanned I used a Mora knife I found under my seat and a styrofoam cup) below picture was before sorting. Had the kiddos sort out the big “nuggets” of sap first. As we cannot have a open fire safely at our house we decided to use a small propane stove and a old cooking pot. Big “nuggets” show below. Started melting the big nuggets first. Once the big nuggets were mostly melted added the rest of the small sap pieces below. The small pieces started to melt quickly More melting Once boiling we poured the sap through a fine mesh filter After all was poured through. You can see that we did a ok job pre cleaning the material as very little was actually left In the fine strainer. The final product It does not look like and is not much . But as we were not able to collect much we are very happy with the amount that we were able to clean.
