I was pouring out my natural maple syrup today and found gelatinous dark brown blob in it. This syrup was stored in the refrigerator in a large plastic bottle. It is not past date on the bottle. Once I pulled this blob out it would not rinse down through my sink strainer very well. What is this blob and is my syrup still good?
