- Tip : Pure maple syrup has a smoother, more subtle flavor than imitation syrups, and is actually less sweet. You don’t need the most expensive “fancy” or “light amber” grade of maple syrup, which is used in candy making. “Medium amber” is the best grade for table use. Cheap maple-flavored syrups are usually made from corn syrup, flavored with a little pure maple syrup; they are simply not as good as the real thing. If you heat maple syrup, it will go further. Keep open containers in the refrigerator.
