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.

Maple syrup can develop a skin of mold but a number of afficianados suggest removing the mold then reboiling the syrup and then continuing to use the syrup:
