Does it Meet the Grade?

         Light Amber Maple Syrup

The first runs of maple sap in the early spring make the Grade A Light Amber syrup. This treasured syrup, with its delicate maple flavor, is used to make maple cream, candy and sugar.

 Medium Amber Maple Syrup

Gradually, as the maple season progresses, the syrup darkens a shade to Grade A Medium Amber. This product bears a richer maple flavor and is great for pouring over pancakes, ice cream or oatmeal. This grade can also used for making maple cream and sugar.

    Dark Amber Maple Syrup

Nearing the end of the 4-6 week season, the syrup darkens again to Grade A Dark Amber, which is also a choice table syrup. With its stronger, more robust maple flavor, it can also be used for cooking.

  Grade B Maple Syrup

At the very end of the season, some maple producers make a small amount of Grade B syrup, which is darker yet and has a strong maple flavor. This syrup was typically used as a cooking syrup, but it is quickly becoming our most popular table syrup.

Regardless of grade, all maple syrup is produced to the same standards and is of exceptional quality.
