The colour and taste of pure maple syrup varies during the sugaring-off season.
Natural flavours are influenced by natural factors! Early on, the syrup is usually clear with a slightly sweet taste. Later in the season, the syrup becomes darker and more caramelized. Maple syrup is classified based on its colour and flavour, allowing foodies and cooks to make their choice based on their intended use.
Golden, Delicate Taste
This syrup comes from maple sap harvested at the very beginning of the sugaring-off season. It’s distinguished by its light golden hue and sweet, delicate flavour. It’s a delicious topping for yogurt and ice cream.
Amber, Rich Taste
This syrup has a pure, rich taste and an attractive amber colour. It’s ideal as an ingredient in vinaigrettes and all sorts of dishes and desserts.
Dark, Robust Taste
This syrup, with its more pronounced, caramelized flavour, is well-suited for cooking, baking and sauces. It’s celebrated for the way it enhances the taste of fruity dishes.
Very Dark, Strong Taste
This syrup is the product of maple sap harvested at the end of the sugaring-off season. Its flavour, more pronounced than any of the previously listed syrups, is rich and distinctive. It colours and perfumes sauces and glazes to perfection.
