Let me interject an idea, however.  What if you tried maple extract vs. maple syrup for a more intense flavor?

Thanks for the suggestion Pops. I have tried extract in the past and it gets closer to the store bought but it isn't a real maple flavour in my opinion, it is kind of like the fake maple in the commercial stuff. 

 

This has a more maple syrup taste that is clear but not overpowering so I think I will stick with it.

 

As for my perseverance, She Who Must Be Obeyed has a different word for it!

I recommend giving back bacon a try. It is fun and tasty!

Thanks, Frosty! Well, as close to perfection as a fat old Canadian can get.

You have that straight! Of course, if it works out well, she also rewards me!

Has anybody tried to use maple sugar instead of syrup?

Got my first batch in yesterday and I used maple syrup. Later...much later... I thought about using maple sugar in the

brine instead of brown sugar.

I tried it as a sweetener in the brine without much success. I did use it in a dry cure and it gave some maple flavour but not a lot.
