Thanks guys! It says MEDIUM on the label. No grade. Come to think of it, I've probably never had real maple syrup, just the maple syrup at pancake restaurants, which most likely can't compare with the real thing, huh. NOW I'm excited to taste real maple syrup. Let me go look for Goodweed's pancake recipe first....!

Think that Medium means "B" grade in the US. You'll love it Chopstix.

I made Goodweed's pancakes for the first time today. Topped it with French butter (salted) and Camp's 100% maple syrup. It was sooooo gooooooood (Thanks Goodweed). The maple syrup was very flavorful, far better than any maple syrup I've ever had. You're right Alix!

GW's pancakes are good.

Once you've had real maple syrup. you won't want the fake stuff again.

Using the Splenda/extract version will give you flavor for cooking. But it won't give you the same rich flavor as the real thing. Also, you can't make it work as a syrup. The texture will be like water.

Also, the extract, even if pure maple, isn't quite the same flavor as maple syrup or maple sugar.

Did you know that you have to boil down (concentrate) 40 gallons of sap fro every gallon of syrup? I live in maple country and know a bit about tapping trees. When you make it, you really begin to appreciate the work involved and why this stuff is such a treat.

And Chopstix, that's what cooking is all about, sharing good things with others. And you are very welcome.

You're right about that Andy!

It was so rich in maple flavor yet with a delicate aroma. The fake stuff I have has an overpowering maple smell and little maple flavor, just sweet.
