This Maple Syrup Is Our Favorite Fall Condiment

Fall hasn't even officially begun and we're already anticipating all the cider donuts, apple pies, and hot drinks that will carry us into winter. The changing seasons and cooler weather call for all the amber hues and flavors of maple.

Though we're happy to have maple syrup on our pancakes or waffles any time of year, now is the time for the sweet condiment to shine in everything from coffee to desserts. And Runamok Maple Syrup has elevated us to higher syrup standards.

Stay up to date on what healthy means now.

Traditional brands can do the trick, sure, but upgrading to something more special and sustainable from a small business is a win-win for us (and for Oprah, too). The premium organic syrup brand is made in Vermont, off a sustainable sugarbush system. Solar panels run the site, which is certified organic by the Northeastern Organic Farmers Association and bird-friendly by the National Audubon Society. The result is some of the best pure maple syrup melded with natural flavors to make delicious infused varieties.

You can't go wrong with the classics. The Sugarmaker's Cut is pure maple syrup, their best and finest blend of each maple season. Cinnamon + Vanilla Infused is exactly as it sounds, ideal for adding as a sweetener to your favorite fall tea or hot coffee. Bourbon Barrel-Aged is the perfect way to spice up a cocktail or top scoops of ice cream. All three are bestsellers for Runamok, the right balances of classic, sweet, and oaky essences. Even better: they come in their own large three-pack of 8-ounce glass bottles.

To buy: Runamok Best Sellers Set, three 8-ounce bottles, $65; amazon.com

The real treat is their series of $20 gift boxes, each with four 2-ounce bottles. Anyone who bought an ice cream maker this summer will be delighted with the ice cream set of vanilla and cinnamon, hibiscus flower, rum barrel-aged, and whiskey barrel-aged styles. Cocktail enthusiasts can add a set to their home bar of ginger root, smoked with pecan wood, jasmine tea, and hibiscus flower. Tea lovers will swoon over flavor infusions like cardamom, cinnamon-vanilla, and The Sugarmaker's Cut. There's even a cheese pairing set with an elderberry-infused style as well as hibiscus, bourbon, and smoked pecan wood flavors.

For a treat you'll use every week, or the perfect gift for a loved one, Runamok maple syrups are a sure bet. See below for all the varieties to try.
