How's it taste?
I boiled down a a 10 qt bucket of maple sap down to about 5-6 oz of syrup. it is a lot of work/time for little reward
How's it taste?
Anyone who has done a bit of it has no problem knowing why it costs so much to buy as a finished product. We tinkered with it a few times and it is crazy how fast the kids will eat up a day of work on their pancakes. They have no idea but that is why when someone makes it and gives it out to family and friends it is a true gift showing that they care a lot about them.
yeah, the ratio of raw sap to finished syrup is something like 50:1
To me, the real stuff is liquid gold. I found a good source for cheap grade-A stuff, and hide it from the kids. They like the fake stuff better, anyway.

You cannot believe everything you read on the internet.
Real maple syrup is gold in a bottle.

Brown gold. Gotta love it.
Maybe you should get into the saffron business
Real maple syrup is one of those food items people seem to either really love, or could do without. If you love it, then it's definitely worth it. The woman still doesn't understand why I'll pay $10-15 for a jar of it that is half the size of a $4 jug of the fake crap. I look forward to every fall when to take an acorn squash out of the garden and bake it with maple syrup and brown sugar.
Not sound like a hippy or anything
Have you guys tried AGAVE syrup??
Both amber and dark agave nectar are sometimes used "straight out of the bottle" as a topping for pancakes, waffles and French toast.
I tried some a while back and it tasted just like maple syrup
Not sure on the price though
Have a feeling it's expensive....
