Maple Syrup

11 Ways to Use Maple Syrup

February 26, 2013

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.

Maple syrup is great in coffee as I learned from a bus driver in VT!

What about that amazing Maple Cream Tart!
This is one of my new favorites. I made the whole tart and it was very rich, so the next round I made little bite sized tarts in mini-muffin tins. It was just the right balance of crust to filling.
