Anyone else refuse to use the colored maple-flavored corn syrup goop? Some of it reminds me of a Lucas product the way it pours and strings from the bottle to the plate. Yuck. One of our few food indulgences is pure maple syrup for our homemade blueberry waffles.

Being originally from Vermont, anything other than real maple syrup is an affront.

Like offering that red watery glitch called "Manhattan Clam Chowder" to a New Englander...

Only the real stuff. Can get it for $10/qt if lucky... Market Basket or BJs during a sale.

Used to make it myself with a turkey fryer but the cost in propane was about the cost of store-bought.

Mom used to make syrup from water, sugar and this stuff called Maplene. Tastes 'zactly like store brand syrup. Interesting factoid about store brand syrup. Up until about 2K. store brand had a higher %age of real Maple syrup than any of the advertised brands. I don't make pancakes often, but when I do , I go for comfort, not sense.

My mom did the same thing. The price of real maple syrup makes it almost a luxury to me. Anyway that’s all in the past. With type 2 diabetes, I have to stay away from those sort of things.

Spend a few weeks in W. Africa and Log Cabin becomes heavenly … (especially with some imported butter)

You make homemade waffles tough guy ??? smile


I'm just messing/joking with ya.
I agree with you 100%. I only use organic real maple syrup in my spiral ham glaze. And it is great for French toast my lady makes as well.

Comes out of kitchen taps in parts of New England. No need for substitutes.

Real maple syrup is awesome on ice cream. This is my favorite for pancakes/waffles/french toast though:

Maple syrup is the only pancake syrup I will tolerate. That corn syrup junk is awful.

Something I've learned: At a restaurant, if you ask them if they have real maple syrup, the only answers you can really trust are:

1. No
2. I don't know

If they say yes, maybe they have it, or maybe they just don't know the difference. The only form of "yes" that counts for anything is something like "oh, come on -- of course it's real maple syrup! What do you take us for?"

It's extremely expensive in California. The only way to buy it is through Costco. I was using it to sweeten my coffee for awhile before I discovered that I can't afford to use it everyday.
