How to eliminate maple flavor?

I made a kettle of soup with some bacon that I had leftover from a previous meal, not realizing it had maple flavor. Now my soup tastes like syrup. What can I add to cancel out some of that flavor?

First it depends on what type of soup you made. Sweet is a hard flavour to hide but depending on the base, citrus of some kind might help.

Enjoy the unexpected taste
I seem to remember doing that not so long ago. It wasn't the flavor profile I was going for, but all in all it added a *little something* to the soup. Ahh yes, it was a hambone my father had given me and I used in split pea soup. I used it not knowing the glaze was maple. I remember now. I just sucked it up and ate it rather than trying to mask the flavor. It wasn't too bad...

It's not really sweet that we want to counter. It's more the caramel type flavor of the maple. And that might be approached something like it's done in brewing where maple or caramel notes intrude. The generally calls for a bitter tartness. Perhaps orange zest or lemon zest. Maybe a real hoppy beer. Somehow my instinct is to try coffee.

It's a creamy wild rice soup with potato and cheese - thanks for the suggestions!

Gee. I'm sorry. Somehow, that sounds like maybe the worst possible soup to be afflicted with maple taste.

You could curry it. Lots of curry have a sweetness to them. Maybe take a cup or so out and try adding a bit of curry and if it tastes good spice the whole lot.

Huh. That sounds like a tough one to work with. I don't think I'd add any citrus to a creamy soup like that. What about toasting some rice and then adding it to the soup to add a bit of an earthy, nutty flavor to the soup? That might make you notice the maple a bit less.

Or...add brown rice. That would give that earthy, nutty taste?????
