It is very expensive everywhere I think. So little syrup actually comes from tapping a Maple tree. If I had to feed a large family they would be getting pancake syrup…maybe the light or low sugar version

I keep both kinds at my house. My DH and the grands like pancake syrup and my stepdaughter and I eat Maple syrup.


One way to stretch it out is to heat it up and add some chopped berries to it.

That's pretty expensive. 540 ml is 18.25 ounces, which is just over a pint.

I can get a quart of pure maple syrup from Canada (which as someone explained to us is likely only 80% maple, diluted with 20% simple syrup) for $14. The exact ratio makes it around $7/pint, and converting it back to ML makes it around $8/540ml.

For 100% pure Maple from Vermont, I'm pretty sure it's running an average of around $18/quart these days. That'd bring it to closer to $10/540 ml.

I am all for real maple syrup or homemade butter-milk syrup (a southern tradition). My bottle of pancake syrup has been on the shelf for about a year now....I think it is time to toss it....not because of the article but because it isn't necessary. Isnt caramel coloring in coke and pepsi too? Oh I just read the article and saw it is also in some soy sauce.....and we do use a lot of that....but we use all natural imported soy sauce....it is less likely to be artificially colored. (Also the relative amount of Soy sauce per serving is so much less than sausage and pancakes or waffles swimming in syrup.

You can mix All Fruit jam with a little water and heat it up for great syrup. Or cook down your own fruit. Bread machines are great for cooking down some fruit!!

I saw it at Loblaw's on special for $4.99 the other day. I think for Easter maple-glazed ham.
Most Easter-related foods were on sale.

Worth its weight in gold.

Thieves in Quebec have made off with a massive haul of maple syrup worth up to $30 million in an unusual burglary targeting the world's most important association of producers of the Canadian confection.
Quebec provincial police are investigating after the Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers, in an inventory check of one of its warehouses, noticed that a large number of the barrels it uses to store its maple syrup were empty.
The warehouse, in St-Louis-de-Blandford, 160 kilometres northeast of Montreal, held about 3.4 million litres of bulk maple syrup and is part of a global strategic reserve of the sticky liquid.

There are plenty of substitutes available for us diabetics.

Your local grocery store may have one in stock...mine does. They're not the same as that pure maple syrup, no...but they are awesome for allowing us to chow down on pancakes as a treat once in a while.

And yes I am fully aware of the carbs in the pancakes, peanut gallery.
