- Store in a cool, dry location or freezer (maple syrup thickens but does not freeze).
- Keep refrigerated after opening.
- If mold does appear at the top of your maple syrup, you can safely remove the mold and make your syrup almost good as new! Use a q-tip to skim away mold, pour maple syrup into a pan and bring to a boil (watch carefully as syrup will quickly boil over!).
- Pour maple syrup on pancakes, waffles, French toast, and ice cream!
- Drizzle maple syrup on fruit, cereal, granola, yogurt, winter squash, sweet potatoes, rice, ham or bacon!
- Glaze on salmon, pork and other meats!
- Use as a sweetener in your coffee, tea, milk, milkshake or smoothie!
- Try maple syrup in your favorite recipes! We like it in our granola, muffins, crisps, pies, fudge, baked beans, chili, BBQ sauce, and salad dressings!
Cooking with Maple Syrup
- You may substitute ¾ cup of maple syrup for 1 cup of sugar. If baking, reduce liquids in the recipe by 2-4 tablespoons per cup of maple syrup and add ¼ tsp baking soda.
