Read about our 2011 Maple Syrup adventure for ideas on how to plan your weekend.
I thought I would use this blog posting to note a change that we have heard is coming for years and has finally come (and honestly makes things more self explanatory). Maple Producers are changing the grading system.
- Grade A Light will now be Grade A Golden
- Grade A Medium will now be Grade A Amber
- Grade A Dark remains the same
- Grade B will now be Grade A Very Dark
Check out this link to a more in depth explanation of the different grades.
For the record, at Little River B&B we use Grade A Very Dark all the time. It is richer in nutrients than the other grades and it has a rich maple flavor. Its great for cooking but we think its great for everything.
