Default Real Maple syrup

I recently bought my first bottle/jug of real maple syrup, amber grade a. It's a fie product but you have to keep it under refrigeration. So I pour cold syrup on my hot pancake's and waffles, making them cold I the process.

I thought about putting a couple of oz. In the microwave to warm it, do you all find the same problem or am I out of my mind? Regular Log Cabin syrup doesn't need to be refrigerated and it's made with sugar.

I grew up with real maple syrup (uncle made it), kept in the fridge. I hate warm syrup...

Cold is the way it's suppose to be!

Just microwave it. Or if you're patient, put the jug in a slow boiling pot of water while you cook pancakes.

Cold syrup is gross. I grew up in syrup ville and never ate it cold.

I always nuke mine before using. hate cold pancakes or french toast. Alternative, set what you think you'll use out the night before to allow to come to room temp. won't hurt it at all.

To enlighten myself, (and maybe others) I found this.

Question: The jug of maple syrup we had bought just over a year ago was stored in the kitchen cabinet. I never notice the small advisory, tucked away in a lot of prose, that it should be refrigerated after opening.

Now, I find a few small greenish thread-like things floating in the syrup that I pour out, which I think are molds. Should I discard what is left – about half the jug – or can it be rescued? – K.R., West Palm Beach

Answer: Unlike honey, which people store in the kitchen cabinet, maple syrup is prone to mold infestation. Although maple syrup may look like honey and taste as sweet, it lacks honey’s unique chemical makeup and defensive devices against any and all invaders.

True, maple syrup has been cooked a lot – 40 gallons boiled down to get just 1 gallon – but a pure syrup to which no preservatives have been added is still likely to mold, if left unrefrigerated after the hermetic seal has been broken.

-------
When you decide you are going to use the syrup that morning, before you begin cooking, pour the amount you may need into a small glass, bowl, cup, something shallow to dip your pieces in, or, to pour it out of, over the pancakes/waffles....
By the time you are ready for it it may have acclimated.

I keep mine in the refrigerator. When I'm ready to use it I put in in the microwave with the amount of butter I'll be needing. There's nothing like hot syrup and melted butter on my waffles.

I pour cold pure maple syrup over vanilla ice cream.

I'll never forget... We were at some friends house for breakfast and they made nice big waffles from scratch, fresh ripe strawberries, and some mouth watering thick cut bacon. They set the table and we were getting ready to dive in and my buddy brings out the syrup, a bottle of Mrs Butterworth's

Pour it in a line on clean snow and let it set a minute. Then roll it up on a stick.

I know people who prefer that crap to the real deal. Obviously they were not raised in the wild like us
Oh the horror!!!

I've never heard of people pulling there maple syrup out of the frig to use it on toast....that's just down right stupid.

If you[ve got a couple of gallons then by all means store it cooled, but your 6-8 oz bottle keep it on the shelf and use it warm.
When the ingredients say corn syrup.......you know its not the real stuff

What about on snow? "Sugar on snow", any of you Yankee folk ever hear that expression? Used to eat that all the time growing up.

Whoever mentioned mixing the butter with the syrup in the microwave, genius.

My brother retired from the Postal Service and moved to Port St Lucie Florida. He hooked up with a farm back up here and started a business selling NH maple syrup at the farmer's markets etc. Apparently the stuff is selling like gangbusters. He says it is selling way better than he predicted.

I grew up in the town where Maple Grove Farms is located. I worked there as a teenager giving tours of the factory. I don't allow fake syrup in my house. Growing up in Vt, you use maple syrup for absolutely everything. I don't think I ate a single meal growing up that didn't have syrup in it somewhere. Ham, baked beans, pancakes, ice cream, peanut butter.....
