I bought some from Waitrose about 6-8 weeks ago. I paid quite a bit of money for it too and barely used it so i need to use it u.

Can I treat it like honey? I have poured some over the pork chops we are going to have tonight and was going to put a little mustard on the chops too. ( honey and mustard)

Or have I just ruined the chops sad

Delish on pancakes too.

And popcorn.

And waffles.


Pecan pie.

And just stolen by the spoonful straight from the bottle grin

maple ribs and chicken

i love it on bacon and pancakes and eggy bread. Delicious.

Maple syrup rocks. I like making drop scones with a banana mashed into the batter and lots some maple syrup as well - they're great for a weekend breakfast with Greek yoghurt.

Think Nigella has a recipe for maple chicken and ribs on her website, looked delicious.

I didn't think you had to use maple syrup up within a short time- always thought it was like honey or syrup in that respect.

Must pay more attention.

DS2 likes it on waffles and honey.

i don't think it needs to be used up in a hurry. it is sugar after all so surely its own preservative.

an opened bottle once went furry on me so I keep it in the fridge - but it doesn't last long in this house.

Not in ours either meltedmarsbars, DP practically drinks the stuff.

It says on the bottle once opened use within 28 days hmm. it looks fine 6-8 weeks later so i'm gonna use it and hope I don't poison the family!

Thanks ladies. Also your suggestions on what to do with it sound delish I must try them I know what to do with it. I never knew maple syrup was so versatile grin

Mmmmm maple syrup.

In Quebec (Canada) where they collect the sap to make the syrup, it's traditional every spring to have a sugaring off party (called cabane a sucre in french)/ This is basically a big buffet out in a log cabin in the woods, with the entire meal drenched in maple syrup - from ham & beans to pancakes.

Great fun - here's an account.
