I got a small cut of prime rib with au jus. Someone else at the table was supposed to get fritters with their meal. The pitcher of syrup was in close proximity to my plate, so my aunt (mind you, I was 12 at the time) picks up the pitcher and starts pouring, saying "this must be the au jus!". I told her it looked like maple syrup to me. "No, No, it's just beef juice. Go on, eat, eat." I took a bite, mostly to
