Maple Syrup - ON vs. QC

mikefly | Jan 16, 2010 09:24 AM

Just bought my first maple syrup in Ontario (been here 7 years, but somehow I always pick this up in QC)

--

Ran out of maple syrup this morning mid-breakfast (gasp!)

Went to Fiesta and bought a bottle of North Harmony medium. (They only seemed to carry organic syrup)

I usually buy it in a can from a maple stand somewhere in Montreal. (also medium)

The ON version seemed to be a more 'golden' colour vs. browner from QC; the ON version seemed sweeter (?) or something different.

On the french toast, the syrup seemed to lack flavour.

Am I crazy or is there actually a difference? (Or both?)

Thanks,

Mike
