While the rest of the country is talking brackets and March Madness, here in the Adirondacks we are talking trees and Maple Madness! Maybe you missed National Pancake Day, but don’t worry, maple syrup tastes amazing on almost anything!
While we gear up for maple season, here are 8 foods you didn’t know tasted amazing with maple syrup…
#1 English Muffin
Slather your English Muffin (our favorite is cinnamon raisin) with butter or coconut oil and drizzle maple syrup over top for a morning treat that tastes more like dessert than breakfast.
Maybe you already knew that sugar can transform this buttery cinema snack into a real treat, but replace the sugar with maple syrup, and you have something really special to indulge in for movie night (or afternoon snack!).
Spruce up your morning routine with a hint of maple syrup in your coffee. Rich meets rich, and you live happily ever after.
That’s right; stir it in, and enjoy — hot or cold! After a taste of heavenly maple milk, you’ll never want to drink chocolate milk again.
Say goodbye to fruit on the bottom, and say hello to maple syrup on the top! Different yogurt varieties (including plain yogurt) are totally transformed with a spoonful of maple syrup. Give it a try!
#6 Brussel sprouts
We’re not kidding you, these loathsome vegetables from every childhood nightmare get a total transformation when roasted, seasoned and coated with a thin layer of the miracle that is maple syrup.
Skip the lemon, and sub in maple syrup for a surprisingly perfect harmony of flavors that sounds so wrong but tastes so right.
#8 Chicken drumsticks
Think barbecue chicken…. only with that strong, sweet, earthy flavor that only maple can deliver. You’ll discover maple drumsticks are finger lickin’ good.
