We don’t use maple syrup often, but a couple times a month we enjoy either pancakes or waffles, and when we do, we have them with butter and maple syrup.
Once living on my own, I didn’t make pancakes, if I wanted them I went out somewhere, and the syrup was whatever they offered.
Sometime in the 1990s I got a good griddle and started making pancakes for myself, and after some experiments settled on Trader Joe’s Dark Maple Syrup. It’s good, with a nice maple flavor and I like it.
Recently, after coming across an article on maple syrup, I decided to order and try Brown Family Farm syrup. It has good maple flavor and is richer tasting than the TJs, though that difference is hard to explain. We like it, especially on waffles, which Barbara prefers over pancakes. We alternate.
Of the three, we’re not sure we have a favorite, they’re all different, so we use up one and then open another. Once we’ve gone through all three, we’ll decide which to stick with.
How about you? Do you use maple syrup? Do you have a favorite?
Also, do you prefer waffles or pancakes?
