Mapletree Farm’s genuine Grade A Maple Syrup is delicious poured over pancakes, waffles, French toast, donuts, cereal or ice cream. It can be used to flavor a milk shake, glaze a ham, added to vegetables, or hundreds of other ways. The darker colored syrups will have a more pronounced maple flavor and are great for cooking and unusual salad dressing and barbecues sauces.
Pure Maple Flavors and Current Grades
Maple syrup is graded according to color determined by light transmittance. Mapletree Farm started using the new International Grade Standards in our 2015 production year.
Grading is performed to very strict standards and we are proud to earn the State of New Hampshire Seal of Quality.
Grade A Golden Delicate Taste has replaced Grade A Light Amber. This syrup has a delicate or mild maple flavor and is the lightest and most golden colored syrup produced.
Grade A Amber Rich Taste has replaced Grade A Medium Amber. This syrup has a richer and more pronounced maple flavor. Consumers wanting a full-bodied maple flavor of medium intensity will prefer Grade A Amber Rich Taste. Its color is amber and a little deeper in color than golden.
Grade A Dark Robust Taste has replaced Grade A Dark Amber. This syrup has a stronger, more robust flavor than syrup in the lighter classes. Consumers preferring darker syrup with a substantial or robust maple flavor will like this grade.
Grade A Very Dark has replaced Grade B. This syrup has the darkest color, the strongest maple flavor, and is usually used in cooking. Some consumers may prefer this grade for table use.
