Real maple syrup -- also maple leaf candy and maple cream [spreadable maple sugar stuff].

Never had the donuts etc or anything with "flavoring". Not sure why though - but I imagine them to be too sweet so passed them up.

Right now, I have about six quarts of REAL maple syrup in my pantry, mostly Grade B, my preference. I think that it is about time to do a RESEARCH project for this board. Each night, I will drizzle maple syrup over another food and determine whether the taste is improved.

I have some Smithfield country-style bacon fried off.

Drizzle a little maple syrup ....

MMM, dang that was great. (Don't you just wish that this board was equipped with "Taste-a-vision"?)

Maybe tomoroow ....

I like plain buttermilk syrup for pancakes rather than maple. I like maple-frosted donuts once in a while, but I could not eat them often.

Thank you for correcting the premise of my thread. Actually, THIS ^ is what I use on pancakes, and not maple syrup. Thus, I stand corrected. I don't like anything maple-flavored, then.

Well, you got me on this one. I never heard of buttermilk syrup before.

So, it's like a caramel flavored syrup? Do you make it yourself?

I think it's what any standard coffee shop has in the syrup/condiment rack which you would use for your pancakes. I think the major brands are all buttermilk syrup.

I think you are confusing the name of what you mean with something else completely. Buttermilk syrup is a cooked syrup with real dairy buttermilk in it that turns brown when the milk is caramelized, as in the recipe I sent you. It is opaque, like caramel candies. And I've never seen it is a supermarket or a coffee shop. Pretty much you'd have to make it at home, with fresh ingredients.

You are probably thinking of Mrs. Butterworth's brand pancake syrup. It's a very popular clear brown corn syrup product that has an artificial buttery taste added. I assure you the original has no buttermilk, and no maple. Most of the so-called table syrups and pancake syrups in the supermarket that are not real maple are corn syrup, some with maple flavor added, some with other flavors, like molasses. Although artificially flavored, they're all much less expensive than real maple syrup so they're popular with many families that have kids who eat a lot of waffles and pancakes. Karo and Aunt Jemima are other well known brands of pancake syrup.

Here's an article comparing pancake syrup to maple syrup:

Pancake syrup or maple syrup? Choosing just one's a sticky business

And here's what's typically in pancake syrup :

Quote:
"Ingredients in Mrs. Butterworth’s Thick & Rich syrup:

High fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, water, salt, cellulose gum, molasses, potassium sorbate (preservative), sodium hexametaphosphate, citric acid, caramel color, natural and artificial flavors."

Have you ever noticed the word "maple" looks misspelled after you've read it numerous times in a row?
Like reading 4 pages worth of this thread?
(Yes, it's a slow day at work.)

I prefer Grade B as well; I like the richer flavor (and the cheaper price! )

NO! LOL I'd be hungry all the time.

Take it off the stove and drizzle it over the snow. It'll harden, AND flavor the snow, which will start to melt. Eat with a spoon.
I have a canadian friend who also does this.

I LOVE MAPLE SYRUP.

I seriously hate "pancake syrup" and other fake/blended knock offs. They are just sugar with artificial flavor.

New York maple syrup is where it is at.

I like anything that is maple flavored that actually tastes like maple (not like fake maple).

I just made a pumpkin roll with Maple cream cheese filling (so good.)

I love maple sugar candy.

I don't even like pancakes, but I put maple in polenta. I put it on everything. I love maple.
