I got home and the babysitter had left the jug of maple syrup (the real stuff) out on the counter today without the top on. It's supposed to be refrigerated - what do you think? I'm generally a stickler about food going off/refrigeration, etc...but am thinking it's not meat/dairy/eggs, so maybe it's not so iffy?

I wouldn't think twice about it. Toss it back in the fridge and move on. Unless they accidentally dumped egg in it, I am sure it's fine.

Yeah - I'd say it's fine. I think the sugar content is high enough that it keeps very well. I don't always put my m.s. in the fridge, if I want it more room temp. FWIW, it may grow mold that way, and you can skim it off, boil it, and call it good as new.

Neither do I. Mine stays in the cupboard.

I also keep my maple syrup in the pantry, not the fridge. It should be fine.
