  • Maple Syrup That Tastes Like Chocolate

    I have been doing a little backyard maple sugaring here in New Hampshire for the past 4 years and am finding that the finished syrup always tastes like chocolate syrup! No one is complaining, but I would prefer it tasted like maple, not like chocolate!

    Anyone have any ideas on why my maple syrup has a chocolate taste and smell?

    Thanks!

    that's a strange problem! you might want to try different trees. sounds like you might be tapping a strange set of trees.

    on the other hand, chocolate flavored maple syrup sounds good!

      Check to make sure the Maple trees are healthy. I had this before from a tree that was dead in the center.

        The Maple trees do have a hollow center when I drilled into them. I thought it would still be ok though. Could that really do it?
