OH, CANADA
QUEBEC SET TO TAP SYRUP RESERVES ...
No Pancake Left Un-drizzled



If your short stack has been feeling a little dry lately due to a lack of (affordable) syrup -- that's all about to change ... because Canada is tapping its stockpile of sweet nectar.

Quebec Maple Syrup Producers -- a quasi-government-sanction agency accounting for over 70% of the world's maple syrup production -- just announced they're going to start draining upwards of 50 million pounds of syrup from barrels they have in their strategic reserve.

Biden did something similar recently with the oil reserves. Anyone else find the timing odd as they both happen around the same time?
 
I find it odd that Canada has a stockpile of maple syrup reserves. That's so Canadian eh?

What are we going to tap next, our poutine reserves?
 
I've had unopened Maple Syrup jars and cans go bad (we have a museum for a pantry) so I'm wondering how stockpiling it works. And by "bad" I don't mean inedible, just that the taste is "off".

Personally, I want fresh syrup, not stuff that's been sitting in barrels for a few years.

I found this quote online and it similar to what I've experienced when someone gives you maple syrup, then you put it in the back of a shelf and forget about it:

"However, prolonged (more than two years) storage may cause the color of maple syrup to darken and the flavor may deteriorate slightly."
