Related Feature: How to Make Maple Syrup Taffy: Maple Syrup on Snow
When I was young, my dad use to jokingly refer to pancakes, French toast, and the like as “syrup delivery foods.” The idea that the food is not as important as the condiment is still hilarious… but also… true? I think we should let the evidence speak for itself. I put a call out to Facebook fans for delectable recipes and sweet things to do with maple sugar and maple syrup! When polled, our fans fervently rejoined our quest for maple foods. From candy, to seafood, to starch, and meat, it seems we’re just about ready to enhance any food with the saccharine goodness of maple syrup!
And don’t forget to check out our Maple Sugar Page with an interactive Map of all the Maple Sugar Weekend events in the state!
