Maple syrup is a natural sweetener with no additives or preservatives. It is sodium and cholesterol free. Maple syrup has been used since ancient times on the North American continent to sweeten and preserve foods. Now a world-wide market for use on pancakes, waffles, ice cream, cereals, tea and coffee. An excellent glaze for meats and vegetables or a wonderful flavoring for baked goods.
Vermont Maple Grades:
With today's high quality standards, the grade of maple syrup does not mean a difference in quality. The maple tree naturally produces a lighter colored maple syrup early in the season that gradually deepens in color and flavor strength toward the end of the season.
