Bulk Maple Syrup
A great buy for home chefs, professionals, and food producers. If you seek maple syrup in bulk, a 5 gallon pail of maple syrup is right for you. Just remember that once opened, maple syrup needs to be stored under refrigeration. The pails are lined with a food grade plastic liner and pour spout. Please note that the lid does not have a bung. However, one can be cut through the center of the lid if needed.
Produced with the sap collected from maple trees on our farm, it is pesticide and formaldehyde free, contains no preservatives, artificial flavorings or colors. Maple Syrup is naturally gluten free and vegan. You can feel good about using our family's Vermont maple syrup in whatever myriad of uses you may require.
Below is a brief rundown of each grade of maple syrup. However, check out our blog on the grades of maple syrup for more detail.
Golden Delicate Taste/Table Syrup - Produced early in the season, this syrup has the finest finish and color. Popular as an ice cream topper and its use in confections, this grade of syrup has a loyal following.
Amber Rich Taste/Table Syrup - This grade of syrup is a favorite for pancakes, French toast, and waffles. Amber Rich Taste is the most popular syrup for restaurants looking for a well rounded table syrup.
Dark Robust Taste/Table Syrup - The more concentrated maple flavor of Dark Robust Taste makes this grade an alternative to Amber Rich Taste as a go to table syrup. Due to the savory maple flavor, Dark Robust Taste enhances many culinary dishes, and is a truly versatile option if you can only have one choice.
Very Dark Strong Taste/Baking - This syrup provides an intense maple flavor that stands up to other ingredients in recipes for baked goods, beans, and meat dishes, while providing a smooth maple flavor on your palate.
Very Dark Strong Taste/End of Season - The darkest end of the last grade, End of Season is exactly that, the last syrup produced at the end of the season. The very strong flavor jumps onto your taste buds with a sharp maple flavor. Proponents of this grade use it similarly to Baking syrup when that extra punch of maple flavor is required. Examples of this are in maple beef jerky production.
Maple Syrup Volume Considerations
When we package our 5 gallon pails, we fill to a specific weight to ensure each container is filled to the proper amount. The US Department of Agriculture specifies a gallon of syrup as weighing 11.02 lbs. However, by our calculations at 67 brix, a gallon of syrup would weigh 11.35 lbs. and this is the figure we fill our containers to. When deciding to use your pail to fill smaller containers, consider using a measuring cup and verifying exactly how much volume the smaller vessel holds. In our experience, most plastic containers (1 gallon, 1/2 gallon, quart, pint, etc.) hold much more than their billed volume. For example, our 1/2 gallon containers hold nearly a 1/2 pint more of syrup in each container than 1/2 a standard US Gallon. As a rule of thumb, we expect about a 7% shrinkage when canning from our 55 gallon bulk storage containers, and suspect this would hold true for those canning at home from our 5 gallon pails.
