ABOUT GRADES

We’re often asked about the differences between maple syrup grades. In general, lighter grades are usually made earlier in the season. They have a more mellow maple flavor whereas darker syrups are usually produced later in the season from older sap and has a much stronger maple flavor. As temperatures get warmer and the sap gets older throughout the season the sugar starts to naturally break down, these new sugars caramelize quicker when heated, thats why the syrup tends to be darker and have a stronger taste. Just like white/red wine and light/dark beer, neither is better, just personal preference. That is why the industry no longer calls dark syrup Grade-B—some people thought that meant it was inferior which is definitely not the case! We do recommend dark or very dark for cooking. If you use golden/amber in recipes, other ingredients may cover up the maple taste. Our dark grade is perfect on pancakes or on anything else! All grades are 67% sugar, 33% water, and have the same thickness and sweetness. We usually use golden/amber for our candy and cream and amber for sugar. Lighter grades usually, but not always, crystalize easier and make better and more consistent confections.

    about how long is the shelf life and then how long after it’s refrigerated – and does it make a difference to the shelf life if you keep it in the freezer?

    • jake says:

      Hi Tom, maple syrup should last indefinitely when sealed in or out of the refrigerator. After being opened it should last at least a year or two in the fridge, sometimes you may get several months left out but we always recommend refrigerating it. Not exactly sure on the freezer, we’ve never tried that

        I’m not an expert on all things Maple syrup…, but I do freeze syrup in a home Fridge/freezer if I am not going to use it for a while. At zero degrees(F), it of course doesn’t actually freeze it just gets real thick so you have to warm it up. I would say the only downside may be that freezing and warming might encourage some sugar crystalization, although I can’t prove that. I’ve never had syrup around longer than maybe 2 years and in all reality I can’t say that for that period of time it’s worth freezing.

    Does the syrup have to be refrigerated?

    • jake says:

      Hi Peter, maple syrup should last indefinitely when sealed in or out of the refrigerator. After being opened it should last at least a year or two in the fridge, sometimes you may get several months left out but we always recommend refrigerating it as it can spoil left out once opened

    What service do you use to ship?

    • jake says:

      Hi Ken, We typically use USPS when shipping but occasionally use UPS. We also sometimes use Amazon’s distribution network to drop ship our inventory if it makes sense, it’s often both faster/cheaper to have them deliver, they use various carriers. Do you require a certain service?

  5. Thomas Ryals says:

    I’m wondering if you accept EBT cards for payment? We can buy directly from the market but I’m sure it cuts into your profit.

  6. Mark Ruttenberg says:

    We live in Conneaut Lake, actually about a mile from Hartstown, can we just come and buy syrup directly from you and pick it up ourselves?

    • You can certainly make an appointment to come purchase any of our products in person. Someone is almost always in the sugar shack during business hours, just let us know when you’d like to come by.

    My neighbor won’t use anything but real maple syrup

  8. Keith Brown says:

    Got my first order of your syrup and Maple cream on Monday Dec 21st. Had the syrup on waffles this morning and it was just great!! Can’t wait to try the maple cream on some warm brownies later. You have a new customer for life!!

    Nova Grades: “All grades are 67% sugar, 33% water, and have the same thickness and sweetness.”
    No List of Ingredients appears on your labels. The word “Pure” suggests that nothing is added to the distilled sap.
    Are you saying that the Ingredients are: Sugar from sap (67%) and Water from sap (33%)?
    Is the original Maple tree sap filtered?

    • You are correct, Bob. The only ingredient for our syrup is maple sap, boiled down to the percentages you list above. The sap is filtered as it comes to our sugar shack, again through the Reverse Osmosis process prior to boiling, and a final time after it has been boiled into maple syrup.

  10. Wild Bill Turkey says:

    Which is darker, Golden or Amber?

  11. Rebecca Atwood says:

    What kind of wood do you use for the boil off? In Vermont & NH, they use mostly maple. In West Virginia they use hickory. The wood used makes the flavors very different.
