The price of maple is climbing and is predicted to skyrocket soon. I generally keep a pint or so in my fridge, but I can buy maple syrup from the bulk tubs at my local health food store. What I'm wondering is how can I store a bulk amount of maple syrup without taking over my fridge? I've tried leaving a jar out, and it starts to ferment, so that's not how to do it. I'm wondering if I were to process it in jars as I would other syrups or jams, if I could then store it on the shelf without it fermenting? Any thoughts? I know it is possible to just buy pre-sealed jugs of maple at the grocery, but the price of those is already prohibitive as far as stocking up is concerned.
