I understand not everybody has this luxury, but what I do every spring is shop around in the various friends and families that happen to know people who own or operate a sugar shack and get various grades of maple syrup. I use grade A instead of white sugar for day-to-day usages (coffee, cereals, etc.), grade B when I'm out of grade A or for maple recipes and grade C for maple sauces and dressings. I once had access to grade D and the strength of the taste was incredible, especially in salad dressing.
So yeah, I consume about two gallons of maple syrup per year plus maple butter on toasts and maple sugar instead of brown sugar and I actually keep a bottle of syrup at work to sweeten my (and my coworker's) coffee.
