As if the holidays weren’t sweet enough, we have another opportunity to enjoy tasty dishes made with pure maple syrup. This is one unique sweet that originated in North America when Native Indians first harvested and boiled the sap of the maple tree into a thick syrup. The basic process remains the same. While harvest is usually during February, National Maple Syrup Day is always December 17th.
Maple is For More Than Just Pancakes
Maple syrup often conjures up images of pancakes being doused in the natural sweetener, and for good reason, they pair extremely well together. However, pure maple syrup can enhance cocktails, desserts, and endless dishes.
We are particularly partial to infused Runamok Cardamom Infused Maple Syrup. This robust maple is infused with a warm cardamom spice giving it the most versatility. Desserts, pancakes, stir fries, roasted vegetables, cocktails— this syrup is good for all. We recommend trying it in your favorite Golden Milk recipe or for a late-night snack, drizzling it on a slice (read two slices) of warm buttered toast. Get cooking!
