Mohawk Valley Maple Syrup Review and Giveaway Ends 2/16/14

DISCLOSURE:
I received products from Mohawk Valley Trading Company for the purpose of review.  I received no monetary compensation. The opinions expressed herein are my own and based on my own use of and experience with the item(s).

You'll recall that I recently posted a review of Mohawk Valley Trading Company's Raw Honey

I thought it couldn't get any better than that. I was wrong!

It gets better!

I also received a bottle of their amazing Grade A, Robust, Dark, Pure Maple Syrup.

Like most people, I've bought maple flavoured syrup. Trust me, the imitation does NOT do the real thing justice at all. Mike (Review Daddy) and I will never buy imitation again. Last night, we had home-made french toast, bacon, and Mohawk Valley Trading Company's  REAL Maple Syrup.

Seriously, how does one describe perfection? Slightly thick, fragrant, sweet... those are just a few inadequate words.  It truly enhances the food that you're eating -- it doesn't overpower it. It's versatile as well. It's NOT just for pancakes, french toast, or waffles.

Check out this recipe for Maple Pecan Scones!

Just take a good, long look at Mike's masterpiece last night... French Toast, Bacon, and real Maple Syrup.  Are you hungry now???










Cool, huh! Mike cooked!  Every bite better than the last -- Delicious! Mike doesn't know it yet... but we're having french toast again tonight! :D

About Maple Syrup:

Maple syrup is made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, black maple, or red maple trees, however it can also be made from other maple species. Maple syrup production is mainly located in northeastern North America; specifically the northeastern states (including New York, Vermont and Maine) and the southeastern parts of Quebec and Ontario, Canada. Given the correct weather conditions, it can be made anywhere in the habitat range of the maple trees. In cold environments, the trees store starch in their trunks and roots before the winter; the starch is then turned to sugar that rises in the sap in the spring.

Our maple syrup is made primarily from sugar maple sap, which is preferred for maple syrup production because it has an average sugar content of two percent. Sap from other maple species is usually lower in sugar content, and about twice as much is needed to produce the same amount of finished syrup.

The folks at Mohawk Valley Trading Company have generously offered one of my readers the opportunity win the same 32 oz. Glass Bottle of Pure Maple Syrup that I received. I thank them kindly!
