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.
Does The Syrup Have to be Refrigerated and If So When, After it is Opened? or always? If I decant a smaller Quantity from The Gallon Container, how or CAN I? How do I store the Remainder of Syrup without Requiring Refrigeration?
We recommend refrigerating the syrup after it is opened (seal broken), especially if it is a larger container and will be used over a longer period of time. You can absolutely pour some syrup into a smaller container to be kept at room temperature for use in the immediate future, keeping the larger container in the fridge.
i like maple syrup.
Love maple syrup
Do you use formaldehyde pellets in the tapping process.
Hi Neil, we do not currently and have never used formaldehyde pellets in any stage of our process. I hadn’t heard of this before and upon looking into it I learned that it was made illegal many years ago.
