OK guys...now I am craving pancakes for dinner and the ribs are a brewing as we speak. PHOOEY!!

OK, questions here. Um, is there no real maple syrup in the US? Why is Canadian maple syrup so prized? Maybe I am jaded since it is all I have ever had.

And kitchenelf, what is European butter? And have you tasted Amarula? Try a little of that instead of your Kahlua. You will LOVE it.

I don't have the numbers in front of me but if I remember correctly, it takes a large area of maple trees and a long time of reducing just to produce a single gallon of pure maple syrup. We have many varieties of maple syrup on our store shelves but they're pretty freakin' expensive! I'd bet the farm that Canada has a LOT more maple trees than the U.S.! I'm jealous, Alix! 8)

DC try buying maple syrup at Trader Joes, it is about half the price of the big chains and for twice the amount. They offer Canadian (which I prefer), Vermont, and Maine.

Thanks, Norge! Unfortunately, we don't have Trader Joe's around here and good maple syrup runs something like $16 for an 8 ounce jar at Kroger. Maple sugar candy is a pretty hot commodity at the local arts festivals and we joke that it's almost worth it's weight in gold! :roll:

Too bad, as that jar would be under $5 at TJ's.

Yup, that is too bad! I'd tap the trees out back if I thought it would do any good. :roll:

My favorite are blueberries mixed with melted non salted butter. I like my pancakes burnt though. :? Am I alone on this? Is it WRONG to love over cooked cakes? I like the texture better. And its adds more personality to the flavor.

I wish I could eat cakes and waffles but they hit my gut like a ton of bricks! I'm jealous because they taste so good! :(
