and Storage Information
Courtesy of Cornell Sugar Maple Research and Extension Program
Maple syrup contains 68% carbohydrates, while most other syrups contain 100%. While it has
virtually the same calorie content as white cane sugar (50 calories/Tbsp), maple syrup contains
significant amounts of calcium (20 mg/Tbsp) and potassium (35 mg/Tbsp), small amounts of iron
and phosphorous, and trace amounts of B vitamins. Its sodium content is low (2 mg/Tbsp).
Store maple syrup in your freezer to retain flavor and quality over an indefinite period of time.
The syrup will not freeze solid and will require only about one hour at room temperature to bring
it to pouring consistency. The amount required can be removed from the container, and the
remainder may be returned to the freezer. If, after extended storage, mold should form on the
surface of the syrup, the original quality can be restored. Remove the mold, heat the syrup to
boiling, skim the surface, sterilize the container, and refill it with the syrup.

|Maple Goes With This?|
|Pork and maple syrup is a
great combination, so is seafood and maple, poultry and
or anything and maple.
|For a quick meal cut pork
tenderloin cross-wise into 1 inch slices.
Pound into 1/4 inchmedallions. Sprinkle with sage or rosemary.
Dredge lightly in flour and sauté in a little butter and olive oil.
Serve with warm maple syrup or a sauce of maple syrup and
melted crabapple jelly.
|Variations: add chopped
fresh ginger root when you cook, sprinkle dried
or toasted nuts over the meat before serving.
|Spiced Maple Pears|
|You don't have to cook to
enjoy maple's goodness. Simply stir in a tablespoon
or two of
maple syrup into a bowl of plain or vanilla yogurt and top with a sprinkle of granola,
chopped fresh fruit, raisin, dried cranberries, chopped nuts, wheat germ,
or even chocolate chips.
