What exactly is maple syrup?

Maple syrup is simply the concentrated sap of the maple tree. The sap itself is almost 98% water. The remaining 2-3% is sugars produced by the tree. For the most part, these sugars are sucrose, the same chemical compound found in cane sugar. In addition to the sugars, there are numerous traces of various minerals, vitamins and amino acids in the sap. These minerals actually make maple syrup better for you than white cane sugar.

Maine Maple Grades

Dark Amber

With a robust flavor, slightly enhanced by a sweet caramel taste, dark amber is an excellent choice as a flavoring in many recipes.
