Most of us love the sweet and sticky flavor or Maple Syrup. It has been produced for years from the sap from Maple trees. There are different types and grades of maple syrup. We’ll talk a little further about Grade B Maple Syrup.
As indicated earlier, maple syrup is produced from the sap collected from maple trees. The sap is available at certain times of the year and is collected in such a manner as to do no harm to the trees.
Maple syrup in the US typically comes from northern states like Vermont. It is also produced in areas of Canada. This is because the right trees thrive in these areas.
The syrup is produced by collecting sap from maple trees and then boiling it to remove the excess water and end up with the syrup. The syrup is then filtered to remove some gritty particles and that is basically it. This is pretty much the same which has been used since Colonial times.
There are different grades which have been established due to the type of sap obtained and its overall composition. The highest quality maple syrup is referred to a Grade A. It is light and sweet. The Grade B maple syrup is an excellent product as well.
However it tends to be much darker is color with a sharp maple flavor. It tends to be used more for cooking and baking rather than directly. However it still provides you with that great maple taste most of us have come to love over the years.
