    I have one place locally where I can get a lower grade of maple syrup, and it is exclusively for making ice cream. All of that flavor gets muted otherwise in the wash of milk, eggs and cream.

    I’ve made those apple pie cookies… they are so amazingly good. Just very time consuming!

    Is there some trick to actually seeing the dinner party matrix, aside from physically getting the NYT?

    Sarajane – You must have hit their paywall viewing limit. I can see the page ok, anybody else?

    No trouble on our part here with the NYT!

    Thanks Megan,

    Maybe I’ll try looking from a different computer…

    Luckily in NEO, grade B is way plentiful (and cheap!!)

    I always thought I was just low-brow for preferring the Grade B – not that I cared. I could never understand why the bland stuff was supposedly superior. I want my maple syrup to taste like maple syrup! I’m not so sure I’m all for the new grading system though because I like getting my Grade B cheaper. :)
