Default Producer versus true sugar maker

It is true that to be called a true sugar maker you have to know the meaning of “were did my finger prints go” and “will this stuff ever come off”
Perhaps that is the difference, anyone can produce, but only those with the experience can be called a true sugar maker. Ohh and don’t be calling a dime size spot that took a minute to get off burning the pan, it’s more like what we’re you doing out in the yard all day with the hose and vinegar.

If anything it sure makes you pay more attention. For a while anyways
