I appreciate the diligence, but how much is your labor worth? These sound like tips and tricks from the depressionary 30s.
Well if I'm making pancakes im already at the stove, putting some water in a pot throwing sugar in takes me about 30 seconds, plus about a minute to wash the pan. Let's just say the total time is about 2 minutes to save $2, that's $60 per hour after tax, or about $87/hr before tax (30% tax assumed). Proabbly a bit lower if you include the cost to run your stove. End of the day it's not significant financially either way.

To me its more about having syrup without preservatives and colouring that made making my own syrup worthwhile. And I guess seeing how much sugar went in psychologically makes you have less, proabbly boosting life expectancy by some tiny amount.

I don't make my own anymore since I just buy real delicious maple syrup.

now, where can we get them whipped butter from?? like the one from McDonald (it is a serious question by the way)
I *think* you can get them from the "business" costco (along with a bunch of other bulk condiments), dunno if Montreal has any though

Anyone who doesn't use real maple syrup is a savage.
There are people so damn poor all they have is their money.

please don't buy Aunt Jemima / table syrup

it's pure, total, absolute crap... made from high-fructose corn syrup, it's the fast way to diabetes

get the good stuff, REAL maple syrup! Not only this will encourage local Canadian producers, your body will thank you.

edit: of course, maple syrup is still sugar so use sparingly
Sheesh. Do you go in the threads on other junk food deals and talk about what garbage they are? Syurp is obviously not the healthiest product out there.

The good news is, I use it about 3 times a year and very sparingly at that.

Thanks OP, I'll keep an eye out for this deal next time I'm in Superstore.

one year my company bought all employees a bottle of Canadian maple syrup for some staff event, it was like 20$ a bottle, supposed to be one of the best on the market was the word on the street. brought it home, none of us or our kids really liked it, it was OK, but we prefer the non maple syrup, such as aunt Jemima's in our house.
