Each season has a sweetness attached to it: something to love, something to savor, something to look forward to -- or to miss -- when the weather starts changing. In the winter, it's maple.
Because what's sweeter in cold weather than the warmth of a pork shoulder, rubbed with it? Or crispy French toast, drizzled with it? Or popcorn, or duck, or pound cake, or ice cream -- time to get out that bottle and take advantage.
