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.

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 dakinfarms.com 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
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.
