I'm thinking the same thing!

To coin the phrase, Chopstix; When in doubt, throw it out. And get a fresh bottle of it. Don't take any chances at all.

As a matter of fact, that happened to me some time ago. But the bottle or maple syrup that I bought was supposed to have the maple flavor to it and it had nothing! Just a sweet taste to it and no maple flavor. Dead!

And it was supposed to be all natural. So it ended up staying in the cupboard. Then on day, I wanted to make some pancakes for breakfast, went to get the syrup and found out that it had little spots of fuss on the top of it!

I had no choice but to toss it out. The next time I went back to the supermarket, I went right back to the syrup that we used when we were kids all at home - Vermont Maid! I know that this one is laden with sweeteners and such, but I can still get that luscious maple flavor when I use it!

I once made maple walnut ice cream with it.

Next time, try the Grade A Dark Amber or Grade B maple syrup. These have a more pronounced maple flavor.

I think that was the kind that I tried before.
