It's the perfect ingredient for everything from baking bread to your stir fried vegetables! Of course, it's the classic choice for pancakes and waffles. Try it as a topping for ice cream, custards, and desserts.
Maple Syrup Care: Maple Syrup keeps well at room temperature in sealed containers. Once opened, the syrup should be refrigerated. You may also put the syrup in the freezer; it won't freeze solid but will keep well. If you should ever discover a mold forming on the surface of your syrup, simply reheat the syrup (DO NOT BOIL) and remove the foam or residue that rises to the top. Let the syrup cool and return to the refrigerator - it will continue to keep well for months.
Maple Syrup Production: It takes about 4 maple trees (each about 40 years old) to produce 40 gallons of sap. When boiled down, 40 gallons of sap will produce 1 gallon of Maple Syrup. This sap is gathered during March or April, when nights are below freezing and the days are warm; and before the trees start to bud. This seasonal "Sugaring Season" is usually 2 to 6 weeks long.
We had a short Maple Syrup Season this past spring so both Old Man Maple and Hunt's Sugar Hill Maple Farm don't have enough syrup to sell to us.
Currently all of our Grade A Golden, Amber and Dark Maple Syrup is produced by:
Fuller's Sugarhouse - Lancaster, New Hampshire
Maple Syrup Grading System:
- Grade A Gold, Delicate Taste: Light, golden color with a mild, delicate maple taste. Use this table syrup for a subtle touch of maple in your food. Previously known as Grade A light Amber or Fancy. This is the choice for making maple frosting for cakes. It adds maple flavor without making the frosting too dark in color.
- Grade A Amber, Rich Taste: This new grade is a combination of the previous grades of Grade A Medium Amber and the lighter half of Grade A Dark Amber. It has a full-bodied flavor. Excellent choice for the classic maple flavor.
- Grade A Dark, Robust Taste: This grade is a combination of the previous grades of the darker half of Grade A Dark Amber and lighter Grade B. It has a pronounced maple flavor, preferred by customers who really like maple syrup flavor.
- Grade A Very Dark, Strong Taste: This grade is the darker half of what was formerly known as Grade B. It has a strong flavor works well as a cooking syrup.
