We'll keep that quiet, as they might be looking for who has their large supply.  ;D

My Chuck White stash just took a hit, but I am quite certain that I know who did it.

Okrafarmer, the look on your face tells me you liked it!  ;)

Lynn, it's hard for me to believe that you're still nursing that bottle.

But, Good as maple syrup is, I can see you trying to make it last!

I confess, I have been nursing it and it only gets pulled out for special occasions.  Of course the jug still looks full, but it is closer to empty.   :-\

I can testify that Chuck White's syrup is at least as good as the stuff I paid too much for at that tourist stand by the side of the road in Vermont this past January! Probably better.

BTW, anybody ever try mixing maple syrup into your milk? Oh, now that's yummmmmy.
As a kid, I used to make syrup on the wood stove just for fun. Eventually I learned that if I didn't screen the snow flees out of the sap, and let them boil into the syrup, no one else in the family would eat the syrup.
More for me!!!!

As a spin-off from Okra's maple syrup and milk, try this!

At the St Lawrence County fair, this year the "maple tent" was selling maple syrup milk shakes!

Definately good!

I ran into this article about Vermont syrup, and possibly changing the grading system.  Maybe some of it has been posted here. I have only bought maple syrup a couple of times. Haven't a clue on grades. Guess its whats on the store shelf. When they talk about light amber and dark, I more or less associate that with beer.
