Maple Syrup?

paprkutr Jan 5, 2011 06:49 PM

I was out with family and the restaurant served real maple syrup in log cabin cans. The restaurant sells them, but was out of them, and then called to say they couldn't get them anymore. Does anyone know of a place in Los Angeles, or mail order that I can get real maple syrup in log cabin cans? TIA

    was it something like this?

    my guess is that they were ordering them from somewhere outside LA. i don't think you'll be able to buy them in a store around town - it strikes me as the kind of thing you'd source from New England or Canada.

    it looks like you can buy them here:

      Thank you, the last one is the one I was looking for, but they are out of stock of it now.

        I like the Grade B Canadian maple sirup from Trader Joe's.
        It's very earthy compared to Grade A.

            Middle aisle, top shelf about half way down in the University Place store.
            I hope that helps.....JW

              But it doesn't come in a log cabin tin.

            I think you are thinking of BLD restaurant. It may be useful to call them and see where they get their cabins and/or who their supplier is.

              I am, and they are out of it, and said that their supplier is out of it too. Thanks

              Log Cabin brand syrup used to come in cabin-shaped cans (with the cap of course being the chimney), but that was sixty-some years ago. (Please don't ask me how I know that.) I didn't know anyone else was doing that these days.

                yes, i was thinking that too...
                the OP mentioned the particular one was General Foods Log Cabin syrup.
                maybe the restaurant just filled it with maple?

                there's an auction with just the tins:

                  Vermont country store sells maple syrup in glass bottles shapes like log cabins, in case anyone is interested.

                    I should know that, since they send me a flurry of catalogs over the course of each year. I tend to ignore their syrup ads, though, since all they sell seems to be Grade A and I can get B, which I prefer, from Trader Joe's down the street.

                      I called them and asked to limit catalogs to quarterly, which I did. I buy all my syrup from my neighbor ( grade B), but I do think those log cabin jars are attractive.
