MAPLE SYRUP GRADE EDUCATION

Choosing the right Maple syrup…

Well there’s no wrong maple syrup to choose from; it’s all based on personal preferences thanks to our good old-fashioned taste buds. If you like a light maple flavor that you would pour on most desserts ranging from vanilla ice cream, to strawberry shortcake, then we would recommend our Fancy Grade. Our award winning Vermont Fancy is our go to syrup for making our own delicious candies and fudges.  And then there’s Grade A Medium Amber. If you’re unsure of what grade of syrup to try, we recommend this flavor. It’s got that good old-fashioned maple flavor that completes pancakes and waffles. Grade A Dark Amber is great for sweetening coffee and pretty much anything hot you would put in a mug during the cold winter months. It’s all there in flavor and in color but wait….. then there’s Grade B. If you bake with Grade B, chances are that the end result is yum! From Pecan pies, to hams, and great baked beans; Grade B get’s an A+! Pretty much anything calling for sugar in a recipe can involve Grade B and definitely produces many edible delights.


Here’s what we have to say about our Maple Syrup….It’s all good!
It’s a very natural healthy sugar and if you’re still not sure what of Grade is right for you, feel free to contact us. Click photos below for a photo gallery for each grade.
