The quebec maple syrup reserve is a national treasure.
 
2021-11-24 6:11:26 PM  
The whole point of the reserve was to stabilize the price of maple syrup and thereby expand it's market share. Hard to convince big companies to use genuine maple syrup (rather than artificial flavors) in products if they don't have a predicable, stable supply. At least that is the idea.

Did they ever get back any of those barrels of syrup that disappeared some years back? I seem to remember that was one of the biggest heists in Canadian history, to the tune of 18 + million.

There are some monsters that prefer the fake maple flavor to actual maple syrup.  When I lived out west in the US it was a horrible realization that they might even be the majority.

My wife likes the fake stuff. She has to hide it because I immediately throw that shiat in the trash when I find it. I might give fake maple syrup a try when we run out of maple trees but until then it is genuine maple syrup or nothing I even use it in my tea and coffee.

I don't buy it. They've probably never actually tasted real maple syrup so they don't know.

In any case, we have our own sugar bush. Last spring, which was a poor syrup year, we got two gallons of syrup from ten taps.I

Next year we'll tap more, I hope.

What is fake maple syrup? Is it just corn syrup?

Dyed and flavoured corn syrup mostly.

I'll survive because I still have this opened bottle of syrup which must be at least a decade old (not into pancakes). It's got a foreboding layer of ocher colored mold on the surface but I'm sure it's fine if you skim that off
 
2021-11-24 6:37:12 PM  
That's a lot of syrup. Be careful with that.

I don't think so Tim. With pecans grilled in butter and brown syrup and homemade cranberry sauce.

Does it come as viscous as the fake stuff? I've had some "real" that was really thin and made the pancake like soggy.

And for some reason, they advertise how disgustingly viscous it is. Thick -n- Rich! 🤮
Apparently in Canada they call it "table syrup". I think I'd rather eat the table plain.

Personally, I love maple syrup on pancakes and waffles, and hate it on or in anything else.

Maple syrup can be a really nice accent flavour in stuff like candied salmon or on bacon, roasted carrots, etc, and a few other things.

It can be quite sickly when done poorly, though. I hate most maple-flavoured stuff.

I have 5 100yr old Maple trees on my very rural property.
We have collected their sap and sugared it for several years now.
Most people have no idea how good this stuff is when it's fresh off the fire...

I've gone into the fridge and poured more than one cool glass of freshly collected sap.

If climate change hurts the northeastern North American continent Maple bush, it really would be
catastrophic.

Thank you, I came to this thread just for that comment.

I also have a bottle of 100% maple syrup in my fridge, which will last a long while. But, uh, I should go double-check it.

What, for the way I like it or the way I don't?

I'll die on the hill of not liking fake maple flavouring.

I never buy Quebec maple syrup with their OPEC-like cartel in that province.  Fortunately there are plenty of Ontario producers if you're willing to put a small effort (such as going to farmers' markets) to find them.
