I grew up in a household that used Log Cabin brand. Wouldn't use that stuff today if I could get it for free. The real stuff is great but we don't use it much because it's a kinda pricey luxury with apparently marginal food value.

I grew up in a maple heavy area in Ohio. Our county always held a maple festival every spring and it was routine for the schools to take a trip to the sugar cabin and watch the process of making maple syrup. One of my favorite things was the hot maple stirs. You'd get a small bowl of hot maple syrup and you'd stir it until it became creamy and then eat. Talk about heaven! Since moving to VA, it's hard to find good maple syrup so I either order it online or pick some up when I go back to visit relatives. Here are links to the two places I get my syrup from for those of you who might enjoy getting some of the genuine article.

Richards Maple Products | If it's maple, we have it! | Chardon | Ohio | Geauga County

Claire, I never thought of that. My mother was a Karo user and I've mostly used Mrs. B or Log Cabin. It could be just that I'm not used to "the good stuff". LOL

Used to be one of the bigger fringe benefits of being in the military.

WARNING! THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU: I've been spoiled by using TJ's maple syrup for many years (expensive but good price compared to other brands, and very good quality). I can no longer stand the goop they serve at Denny's and places of that ilk, nor can I stomach cheap commercial "maple flavored" syrups.
