How do you remove mold on maple syrup?

Mold on maple syrup is a very common and easily fixed problem. Syrup will mold no matter how you store it - freezing and refrigerating will postpone it but you might find mold anyway. First, skim as much mold off the top of the syrup as you can. then, pour the syrup into a saucepan and slowly bring to *just* a boil. turn it off and let it cool without disturbing it for a few minutes, then skim the surface again. you can repeat this if there is a lot of mold floating around, or if the surface mold got mixed into the syrup. Just remember to let it cool and then heat slowly WITHOUT STIRRING. and dont let it boil, that will thicken it up and make it prone to crystallizing (you'll get maple sugar instead of maple syrup) Sterilize the container the syrup was originally in and pour the cooled syrup back in.

Can expired maple syrup hurt you?

Expired maple syrup can hurt you if there is mold growing on the bottom of it. But if you scrape off the mold then the chances of you getting sick are very slim. If it were me I wouldn't take a chance. I say this because one of my friends got appendicitis after eating old maple syrup. He got this because the crystal sugar in it gets stuck in your appendix and can cause major pain. So before you eat old maple syrup, please be safe and don't Kill yourself.
