I'm a big man about 6'4 with my Red Wings on. On a good day during the summer in 100 degree heat I can burn about 1O,000 calories and drink two gallons of water working before sun up to after sun down landscaping. So Yes I could and have finished those two plates of food you see in the pictures.

Now my blue ox babe on the other hand........

Seriously I have finished that meal I posted and I am a landscaper.

I like very traditional. Plain. Buttermilk syrup. I don't know what the difference is between that and maple. But I like it a lot better than maple.

Blueberry? No thanks.

I always make my pancakes with corn meal and use out homemade maple syrup with it. And occasionally, fresh blueberries in the mix.

Grade A syrup is really light and may be better when using it in a cake or other baking applications.

Grade B syrup is much heavier and has a stronger flavor. In general, it comes later in the season.

The grades have nothing to do with the quality, just the color.

Pancakes with real maple syrup. I like to use the small blueberries in them--you can get them frozen just like the ones we used to pick in the summer. (There are still some places where you can pick wild blueberries, the small sweet ones.......mmmmmmmmmmmmmm).

I love pancakes with stewed blackberries on top or pumpkin spice pancakes with syrup. Not into the butter on top though

What is the difference between fake and "real" syrup? I'm kind of skeptical of this idea.

Partly because I went to a restaruant who served buttermilk syrup or "real maple" if requested. I still preferred the buttermilk flavor.

I prefer real maple syrup. It tastes good, and I think it has more vitamins than sugar syrups. I don't really like pancakes...but the ones that are the best are buckwheat or some other sort of whole grain pancake. I like to put bananas or apples in pancakes.

My favorite "pancakes" are banana fritters or pumpkin fritters from my country. We don't put eggs in the batter, and the result is chewier than "hotcakes." I like to eat them with a type of red herring sauce. It is dried red herring hydrated and cooked with tomatoes, garlic thyme etc, and poured over a dish of mashed green vegetables, which normally includes okra, spinach and eggplant.

The taste of the sweet pancake and the savory and salty fish, plus the vegetables is awesome. Sheesh, I feel like eating some this weekend!

I use a part maple syrup, part agave syrup. Tastes like all maple, only a thinner consistency. But, I use it on fruit or in yogurt or something like that. Not a pancake fan--they sit in my stomach like lead after I eat them and I can only 1 anyways.
I like french toast--even Trader Joe's has a french toast that's pretty darn good. Not crazy about waffles either, kinda dry and hard to me.

The difference is this.

"Real" maple syrup is the boiled sap of the sugar maple trees, generally only in the northern climate.

"Maple-flavored" syrup generally is corn syrup that is mixed with inferior grades of maple syrup. Generally, there is 1-2% maple syrup. It is generally much heavier than maple syrup.

Personally, I have NO problems with corn syrup. I just bought a bottle of Karo's Dark Corn Syrup for some recipes and I have a large can of Steen's Cane Syrup in my pantry. They are all good.
