Btw, generic syrups taste awful to me.
I like the fake stuff too.

There is a guy about 3 miles from me that makes it. I have a job coming up in the spring for Andy. If you can't find any maple syrup near you, remind me and I will make sure that he gets some.

I think Heidi Farmer Market near me has it but they're not open until spring. I think!

How about maple syrup and milk?? Real milk(raw). Also used to pour blobs on ice, fresh out of the processor. Makes great candy!!

Re: Maple Syrup Vs Pancake Syrup?


Went out for breakfast after church today and had blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup.
My BIL and sister have a place in Stowe, VT and they send us maple syrup every Christmas.
I have been to the place when I was up there.
Small family operation back in the woods outside of the town.
Sugar shack in the back, walk in, get what you want. Honor system.

Excellent syrup.

Re: Maple Syrup Vs Pancake Syrup?


For the first time in my career as a moderator, both here and elsewhere, I find myself facing the decision of whether or not to remove a thread OP'd with blasphemy.

There is no True Syrup other than Maple Syrup. Those who would claim otherwise are Agents of Dark Forces among us, and will face justice at the final reckoning.

Aside from all that, the stuff you buy in stores can vary considerably in quality. I highly recommend that if possible you take the time to tap some trees and make your own. That way, you can tailor it to your taste. Done right, it's pure nectar.

Re: Maple Syrup Vs Pancake Syrup?


My family makes a couple gallons every year, I always have plenty on hand. I prefer it to the fake stuff but my worse half thinks Aunt Jemima Butter Flavour is superior...

OK, Mr. Euell Gibbons.

I might get around to tapping something, but it damned sure ain't gonna be no maple tree.

That would be bad syrup in my book. It sounds scorched.

Every old farmhouse around here had sugar maples, they'd be planted when the house was built. Sometimes that was all the people used for sweetener.

Vermonters are known to take a small jug of maple syrup with them when they travel in case they are served the fake stuff.

Re: Maple Syrup Vs Pancake Syrup?


I never tried the fake stuff until I got it at a restaurant when I was around 30. Couldn't eat it. Now we always order butter and confectioner's sugar when we go out around here.

PS- Maple syrup is enough of a thing at my house that I once found a quart wedged under the passenger seat of my wife's car.
