After some pancakes and maple syrup, the bottom of the bottle of syrup had sugared. So, we just warmed it a bit then poured it into the little glass jar. Put it on the stove top and let it heat so it turned back into syrup rather than sugar. Yummy! Stoves come in handy for many things. btw, in picture 1 you can see (barely because it is so bright) our sliding glass door and the wood rack just outside the door. That proves handy when the stove needs filling.
