You can get 32oz grade A pure maple syrup from Costco for $12.
Then I'm sold, I love Costco (for some reason) but the gozillion miles I have to drive to get to mine makes this a good deal. Besides, Costco maple syrup comes from those damned Canadians....
The thing about Maple Syrup - it's produced in the spring. Don't know about everyone else but I use a lot less syrup is the spring/summer than I do in the fall/winter and by then, most of our local sugarhouses are barren.
I purchased this syrup last year from this producer through a Deal Chicken buy. The syrup was excellent! We just ran out and are in need of more more, so this is perfect timing. My email from them last night, and I've got a gallon in my cart already!
Is it the damage from the heat (like Pasteurization of milk)?
The darker Grade B has more maple flavor, more intense. It's a matter of personal preference, but many folks prefer the Grade B's flavor.
Pure Maple Syrup Grades
The USDA syrup grading system uses five different maple grades. Three graded A; Grade A Light Amber, Grade A Medium Amber, Grade A Dark Amber and two darker syrups, Grade B maple syrup and Commercial Grade. These grades have specific and important upper and lower limits for color and flavor. As a rule, the darker the color, the stronger the flavor. Individual preference for a particular grade of maple syrup is similar to that of the wine consumer; some people prefer reds, some whites, some blush and so on. Grade A Light Amber has a very delicate maple flavor. Medium Amber has a nice mild flavor. Grade A Dark Amber has a full-bodied maple flavor while Grade B - including Grade B organic maple syrup - has a hearty, robust flavor. All are great on pancakes and waffles but the extra flavor in Grade A Dark Amber and Grade B maple syrup allow these two to be of great use as an ingredient as well.
