Maple syrup is better for you than processed sugar. Sugar doesn't
digest, but rather goes directly into the blood stream causing a rise in
blood sugar. Usually the swift rises are then followed by a sharp decline. Maple syrup, however, is one of the few sweet treats that does digest in the system helping to keep the blood sugar more even. So it not only tastes good, but is also good for you.

If a little harmless mold forms on the syrup, skim it off, reboil the syrup, and pour into the cleaned jug or jar. Place in the fridge.
