GOLDEN • DELICATE TASTE
The first runs of maple sap in the early spring make the Grade A Golden Delicate syrup. This treasured syrup has a light, golden color with a mild, delicate taste. Often used to make maple cream, candy and sugar, it is also excellent as a table syrup – or over ice cream or yogurt.
AMBER • RICH TASTE
Gradually, as the maple season progresses, the syrup darkens a shade to Grade A Amber Rich. A light amber color and full-bodied flavor, this class of syrup is the product of choice for consumers who desire the classic maple syrup flavor. Great for pouring over pancakes, ice cream and oatmeal.
DARK • ROBUST TASTE
Nearing the end of the 4-6 week season, the syrup darkens again to Grade A Dark Robust. Featuring a more pronounced maple flavor, this class will satisfy those consumers who desire the strong flavors of what had previously been considered Grade B. With its stronger, more robust maple flavor, this grade can also be used for cooking.
