History reveals several explanations for the discovery of pure maple syrup. The most widely accepted story is that of how a family squabble turned into an important agricultural discovery.
The story says an Indian woman placed her cooking pot under a maple tree as a subtle hint to her man that she needed water from the spring to cook a meal with. The man, in a fit of anger, plunged his tomahawk deep into the maple tree to remind his woman that he was above such a womanly chore as fetching water. The next morning, as the story continues, the woman found the pot nearly full and proceeded to cook meat for a meal. What she thought was water cooking was actually sap from a maple tree. After the meat was cooked they discovered the sweet flavor in the pan - she had made the first pot of pure maple syrup.
Other stories are reasonable and some not, but one fact that can not be denied is that pure maple syrup is definitely as American as Plymouth Rock or pumpkin pie and older than both.
Grade B Pure Maple Syrup has a stronger flavor than Grade A Pure Maple Syrup and tends to be darker in color. It's great as a cooking additive to sweeten up many different foods, but some people do enjoy the stronger flavor with their pancakes and waffles.
