Fortune Farms maple products are made
from pure maple sap. There are no additives or preservatives in maple
syrup or maple sugar and are natural organic products.
We pack our syrup in glass bottles or
plastic jugs. The glass bottles are imported. The plastic jugs are made
in Canada from food grade material Maple syrup may be stored for
prolonged periods in either container as long as the seal is not
broken. After opening the syrup should be kept refrigerated. Storing
the syrup in a freezer will help retain its fresh flavour for a longer
period. It can be safely frozen in either the glass bottle or jug.
Maple "butter" is made from pure maple
syrup. The syrup is boiled to a very soft sugar stage. Then stirred as
is cools to produce a soft, creamy product for spreading on toast or
buns. It is packed in jars It may separate to syrup and sugar in a
manner similar to peanut butter. The consistency can be recovered by
candy is produced in a variety or shapes and sizes. It is packed in
bulk or in gift boxes.
Maple fudge is a mixture of maple
syrup, butter and cream. We make this product only during the maple
season. It is a very rich, smooth tasting creamy product. Storage does
not seem to be a problem as it quickly "disappears".

Maple flavour and grades of maple
There are different grades of syrup
based on colour and flavour. All grades have the same sugar content and
it is a matter of preference whether you choose extra light, light,
medium or amber. Usually the darker the colour, the more caramelized
the flavour. A taste test is the best way to decide which syrup you
prefer. All syrup is delicious. The lighter syrups are best for candy
and maple topping on ice cream. The darker syrup is best for cooking.
Medium the most preferred grade is good for nearly all uses.
