Our family is very lucky to get maple syrup from my father in law who boils the sap into syrup at the Don Sim Farm in Sutton, VT. We are well supplied with sweet syrup for our waffles and pancakes. We also use it for baking, marinades, and to sweeten plain yogurt.
I was surprised recently to find that much of the maple syrup at my local grocery store was made in other states, and even in Canada. I was even more surprised to be served imitation maple syrup at a local restaurant.
I hope that you will be mindful of where your maple syrup is from. Shop locally and support your local sugar makers. To find a sugar-house near you go the Vermont Maple website: here.
