Maple Syrup
« on: February 08, 2012, 06:02:13 PM »
A fellow FF member from New York unsolicitedly mailed me a jug of Maple Syrup.  It came yesterday so today it was biscuits and syrup for supper.

 :D :D :D Must be true, seems logical to me.


I've had some good stuff from Pat in Michigan. He boiled it down darker, which is more intense flavour. My grandfather did it this way to. :) I'm sure Jeff will give a testimonial on Pat's syrup. ;)
Move'n on.

Looks great!

My favorite is buttermilk pancakes smothered in warm butter and warm maple syrup.  :)

Pat's syrup was the best. I miss the syrup and I miss Pat too!

We picked up some syrup in The West End of The UP last fall. Jill made pancakes last night so we tried it and this syrup is light colored, thin and tastes like smoke.

Did I mention I miss Pat?

I like maple syrup on my buttered cakes or waffles.  I prefer blue ribbon cane syrup on my hot, buttered, scratch made, cathead buttermilk biscuits.  I'll eat sorghum syrup when I have nothing else.

Blackburn Made, cane syrup has always been my mainstay because that is what Daddy used.  I have eaten Maple syrup, but this is the first "homemade" that I have ever had.   :)

My last batch was 2010 not making any this year either as the temps are kind of poor for a good run.   I do mine over open wood fire and did have a bad batch due to using some popple wood in the fire that left it skunky.   I learned my lesson there I use only Maple, Apple or Oak/Hickory & some elm for boiling it down.   I like the hint of cherry or apple wood in it for smoke but usually only make a part batch with the smoke around the syrup.   then I tighten up for higher volume boils so there are no smoky flavorings.   I hoping I have enough to last me through the rest of the year...

The maple sugar process is something I'm completely unfamiliar with, other than what I've read about on the forum.  For those of you that do this to sell your product, a few questions, what size containers are average, and what is the cost?  It looks like it would be very labor intensive and at the same time very rewarding work.  Magicman, it sure is nice having friends in high places eh?  :)

some forsale on local CL 7bucks a pint 48/gallon, and spread of prices in between for first run.   I gave a bunch away to friends family neighbors ect for a while was trading for honey and swapping syrup with a different person for different flavors.   processing can make a big difference to taste..

Sorry about that, after re-reading my post, that sounded horrible.  Yes MM I meant your friend was to the to the north (higher places), and no I'm absolutely NOT a doper.  Once again sorry for the bad wording.

Maple Syrup made in the North by Yankees will make all grits taste bad to someone from the South.   ;D  Why waste good maple syrup made by a Yankee?  ;D
