hmm....I was always told to use 1/2 the amount of honey or maple syrup as sugar.

does seem like a lot according to the chart because isn't honey and maple syrup sweeter?  more concentrated?

They're definitely sweeter....I think the sweetness depends on some different factors.  I use honey right from a local apiary and our maple syrup comes from my uncle's syrup operation.  There's no chance for either to have the flavor "watered down."

I bought maple syrup the other day, and my son asked me why is it "water-ey"....this is vermont maple syrup (so it says) is maple syrup normally thin?

It's not as thick as the pancake syrup sold in stores.  When I said "watered down" I meant the flavor.
