What is pure Vermont maple syrup

One of the most pure, all natural and sweet organic syrups you can buy is pure Vermont maple syrup. Most maple syrups you see in stores is 100% fake man-made syrups. They are filled with fillers, preservatives and artificial flavors.

Pure Vermont maple syrup on the other hand is just that, maple syrup that comes from the sap of the Vermont maple trees. Vermont is one of the top producers of real maple syrup in the United States despite it's small size.

Every spring Vermont maple syrup producers spend weeks, day and night out in the woods collecting sap from the maple trees. They gather it all up in a holding tank, then boil it in big, flat evaporators.

Once the sap is boiled down far enough, the sugar in the sap becomes thick and golden colored. At just the right temperature it's drawn off into barrels to cool. The result is great tasting pure Vermont maple syrup with nothing else added!

Vermont maple syrup recipe, maple baked apples

You can use pure Vermont maple syrup on and in all kinds of foods, beverages and ingredients. There are many maple syrup recipes you can find. Below is a great one I'm sure you'll love!

Vermont Maple Baked Apples

This recipe will fill your home with the tantalizing aroma of apples and cinnamon, and they taste just as good as they smell.

The ingredient that makes these apples yummier than tradition baked apples is the pure Vermont maple syrup. Apples and maple syrup is a match made in heaven! Just one bite, and you’re sure to be hooked.

Large baking apples work best for this recipe. Try Jonathan, Granny Smith, Winesap, Northern Spy, and other apple varieties with tart, tangy flesh. The sweetness of the maple syrup plays well in juxtaposition with the tartness of the fruit.

Maple baked apples can serve as a wonderful side dish for pork, as an attractive dessert, or as an anytime snack.

What you’ll need:

6 large baking apples

6 pats butter

pure Vermont maple syrup


Cinnamon sugar

Directions: Wash and dry apples and core almost all the way to the bottom. If apples will not sit flat, remove a small slice from the bottom to create a flat surface. Remove peeling from the top one-quarter of each fruit.

Into each core space, place a pat of butter and a pinch of cinnamon. Fill cores with maple syrup. Sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on the peeled section of the apples.

Place apples in a baking dish and bake at 375 degrees until soft. Small apples will take about 40 minutes, while larger apples might take as long as 50 minutes.

During baking, baste the apples frequently with the pan liquid.

Pure Vermont maple syrup direct from maple producers

Make sure you try that maple syrup recipe above and let me know what you think! The best way to make sure your getting real and organic maple syrup is to buy it direct from a maple syrup producer.

The best maple syrup, I think anyway, is pure Vermont maple syrup. One of the best online stores to buy it from is Perrault's maple syrup store. They are a small Vermont family that have been making maple syrup for years.

You can buy it in half gallon and gallon sizes and choose from two different grades of syrup. It's all pure, organic Vermont maple syrup with nothing at all added. Once you open up a container of maple syrup be sure to refrigerate it.

So try some real maple syrup for a change instead of that fake, artificial syrup you find in big chain grocery stores. You'll really taste the difference and it's better for you!

      Now that would actually make a great edition for this hub. I only I wish my camera hadn't died on me and I had the time to take a trip to my uncle's farm.

      St. Albans isn't bad. I did inventory at the TJ Maxx there years back. Born in Bennington myself, but I lived in Burlington for a while.

      Good to meet a fellow Vermonter on Hubpages.

      Hey Nate, I'm from Vermont myself, St. Albans. Yeah I have a friend that makes maple syrup. I'm coming up in March to take pictures and videos of him making it.

      As a Vermonter, Vermont Maple Syrup actually makes up about 90% of my blood.

      My uncle's family owns property in a maple tree forest and he makes syrup. Nectar of the gods that stuff.
