Let’s face it, there aren’t very many of us that are willing to go out in the back yard, assuming you have one, and tap your lonely maple tree in hopes of getting some sap to make one of nature’s tastiest treats. In fact, it takes approximately 40 gallons of sap to make 1 gallon of finished maple syrup. That’s a lot of boiling that has to take place to reduce the sap down to the sugary sweet flow we all enjoy. I say we leave it up to the professionals that slave over their hot stoves each year making this for you and me. They take the time necessary to make that clear maple sap into the delicious golden syrup that we often take for granted. Ranking the 5th largest producer of maple syrup in the nation (2023), Michigan is a serious contender in the US when it comes to the golden goodness God’s trees have to offer.

Grade A vs. Grade B.
Grade A syrup is produced early on in the season and is characterized by its light amber color. Grade A is said to be the most preferred grade by consumers because of its light maple flavor.
Grade B is produced later in the season and has a darker, grittier color, thicker viscosity, more robust maple flavor and more minerals. Grade B has a heavy maple flavor that lingers on your taste buds.
