Maple Syrup Reviews

I am looking for a really good maple syrup. If you know of one and where I can get it, please let me know. I like a good strong maple taste.

Thank you,
Betty From Summerville, S.C.

I don't know of a good one, but I overheard a man at the grocery store telling someone that grade B

maple syrup was better than grade A because it had more of a maple flavor. He said they add more sugar to grade A. I hope this helps

Dakin Farms sells Vermont maple syrup which is delicious. You can go online at and order it. I originally ordered some and then, while visiting in Vermont, bought several quarts to bring back home. Grade B really is better than grade A, according to what I was told in Vermont, and the darker the syrup is, the stronger the taste.

I hate to tell you that whoever you were talking to knows nothing about maple syrup.

Grade: Fancy = best for eating - delicate flavor

A = good for eating - a little stronger flavor

B = For cooking only - dark - strong flavor

which allows the flavor to hold up in

cooking - like adding to muffins or cake

Note : the man in the grocery store doesn't know what he is talking about. Nothing (no sugar) is added to real maple syrup.

Grade: Fancy = light color -delicate flavor = is made

in the first few days of syrup making -in early


A = a little darker - a little stronger flavor

B = dark - strong flavor -is the last of the

season's run.

A good desert - Rag Muffins

Heat oven to 375

put 1/2 inch or so of maple syrup in a 13"x9"x2" pan add bits of butter totaling about 2 or 3 tablespoonsful heat in oven only it butter melts then top with baking powder bisquits or you can use the canned ones. Bake about 20 mins or until bisquits are done.
