:-) ....a whole 3 gallons here. We're done. Taps get pulled tomorrow. Next year will be a gusher!
I love that you tap your own trees. Three gallons for a family is perfect!
I'll bet the dark syrup is really tasty! :)
Candy, you're right. What they sell in stores is Fancy Grade A Light (or medium) syrup. To me, that just tastes sweet - like sugar. My favorite has always been Grade B. It's a very dark, luscious syrup with a strong maple taste. The maple taste really stands out when you pour it on pancakes or use it in cooking. I make my granola cereal with it. Yum!
I have friends in Canada and they save the tasty "B" syrup for themselves and sell the lighter stuff to the tourists. *heh*
