An opened container of imitation maple extract, or maple flavoring, will last a year in your cupboard. I am guessing that an unopened container will much longer but I don’t know for sure. I try to keep 3 bottles of imitation maple extract in my cupboard at all times, which is about a 6-12 month supply for our family.
It can be used for making syrup for pancakes or even flavoring breads, cookies, baked goods, cranberry sauce, frosting, meats, grilling, sauces, and other sweets.
