This is an unbelievable price for Wood-Fired, Organic, Pure Vermont Maple Syrup in your hand, signed, sealed, and delivered! For bakers, value added food producers, or people who know what late season Vermont maple syrup tastes like.... and love it, here is your product!
What makes it commercial grade? While according to the color based grading, this syrup grades as Dark and Robust (as opposed to Very Dark and Strong), the flavor itself is quite strong, with that late season "bite" that you must experienced to understand. The "bite" is mapley flavor that lingers on your tongue, a smoky spiciness, or to the real connoisseurs out there, a slightly metallic after taste.
I do not find this syrup particularly off putting, in fact I put a gallon of it in my fridge and found different places to enjoy it. While it is a little much for waffles and pancakes (when you have better options available), it really shines in a bowl of yogurt with fruit, as a marinate, or over ice cream. The strong kick is excellent for baking, so that mapley goodness isn't lost in the recipe or the oven, and it makes amazing trail mix. This is an excellent product at an amazing price, so pick it up if you're confident that its what you're looking for!
Additionally, the fact that we are selling this Dark and Robust syrup as commercial grade only further vouches for the quality of the rest of our syrups. Many producers will blend this low quality syrup into higher quality syrups, to make a homogeneously acceptable product. This fact is why Rugged Ridge has won every informal taste test we've run against off the shelf syrup. Our small batch, quality first process means our best syrups go unblended into the bottle, and our lesser syrups find their perfect market. If this syrup is not for you, we are positive that our other syrups will be!
