Unless you left it open to the air it should be perfectly safe. Maple sap is thickened into syrup via boiling so any bacteria/etc. originating in it will be killed off. Thick sugary syrups also make it very hard for bacteria and mold to grow. Despite the plentiful food source, the concentrated sugar is dessicative: OK, maple syrup is wet, but it’s ...
Will be perfectly fine. Maple syrup does not have enough sugar to prevent mold and no preservatives, so like bread or wine, it can develop mold after 7 days or so, pending the environment. 1 or 2 days, not an issue. Typically it's what you add to syrup that causes the mold after opening. Plastic containers shorten shelf life Conisderably to about 1 ...

This I believe would work because once it is turned over, the products goes back to the top which is actually now the bottom. Another option would be to vacuum seal the jars, which the ...

I believe 3-4 days max. Be sure to do the smell and taste test also. Sometimes these kinds of foods are not time-able.
I know this is not a SCIENTIFIC test with control groups and such, but I will share my thoughts on this matter and how I've been pickling my fresh egg surplus for over 25 years with absolutely no ill effects, or refrigeration. I may add that my 4 children were raised eating these eggs, even in the hot Southern summers, and they are all very much alive with ...
