Vermont Maple Syrup

We generally make three, sometimes four, grades of maple syrup. The season usually starts with lighter syrup and ends with dark syrup. Lighter syrup has a more delicate but less pronounced maple flavor. Darker syrup is more viscous and has a more pronounced maple taste.Rich Amber and Robust Dark are the common table grades. One generally finds Rich Amber in the grocery store, we prefer Robust Dark, which has a stronger maple flavor. We also have Very Dark and Strong syrup- made late in the season with a pronounced maple flavor, general used in cooking, although some folks like its strong taste on pancakes. We also sometimes have Delicate Light syrup- it has a very delicate maple flavor.
