Got enough maple in the kitchen? This was a banner year for Maple; Conditions were perfect for a great harvest. Stock up and keep your Sunday brunches (or weekday breakfasts) fueled with local flavor.

We buy a gallon and a half (1 Gal B & 1/2 gallon of A Medium) for our household. We have been chugging through it and will probably have to stock up on some more. Haven’t been cooing or baking with maple? Great way to keep your sugars more local/natural. Check out this quick list of amazing ways to enjoy maple in the kitchen. One Ingredient, Many Ways by Saveur.  PS – makes a mean mixer as well. Best addition to any bar!!

Remember, the grades have nothing to do with quality — B isn’t any “worse than” A. From WIkipediaExtra Light and Grade A typically have a milder flavour than Grade B, which is very dark, with a rich maple flavour.The dark grades of syrup are used primarily for cooking and baking, although some specialty dark syrups are produced for table use.Syrup harvested earlier in the season tends to yield a lighter color. The classification of maple syrup in the US depends ultimately on its translucence. US Grade A Light Amber has to be more than 75 percent translucent, US Grade A Medium Amber has to be 60.5 to 74.9 percent translucent, US Grade A Dark Amber has to be 44.0 to 60.4 percent translucent, and US Grade B is any product less than 44.0 percent translucent.
