March in New England brings sugar season. Many maple syrup producers have been at it for generations and still do much of the work manually, collecting sap daily by hand, bucket by bucket. Then water is boiled off, leaving behind the amber gold. Of course, old-fashioned is as trendy with syrup as it is with cheese or bread.

Did you know that small-batch maple syrup producers have joined the rising tide of artisans across the land, trying things like whiskey-barrel aging to set their products apart from the pack. (Fancy prices are included.) Here are two standouts:

Dark Amber syrup is velvety thick with flavors of butterscotch and caramel and the faintest coffee bite in the finish. The producers have taken the trouble to have their land certified, so you know that every drop is organic. (12-ounce bottle: $18,

Try one of these maple delights in a Maple-Bourbon Sour:

March is Maple Month

Happy “Maple Syrup Month” to all. Late-February to mid-March is the prime season for Maple trees and the sweet sap they produce. If you’re not a maple syrup fiend, you might assume that the liquid goodness is only meant for pancakes. Good news, newbies – adding pure maple syrup (look for Grade A pure maple… not Aunt Jemima) is an easy way to spice up your meals with something sappy.

1. Glaze your Brussels sprouts

Sprouts are everywhere lately – even Forbes magazine declared that they are making a comeback for 2014. And no wonder why – they’re packed with Vitamin K and C and are known to be healthier than broccoli or kale. Before you roast, top of this veggie with some syrup and your taste buds will thank you.

2.Drizzle it on Greek yogurt

We love the Greek yogurt-and-honey trend, of course. Give it a new spin by adding maple syrup instead: just as sweet and thick as honey, but it comes from the trees instead of hives.

3. Pour it on ice cream

It’s a tradition in Vermont to pour newly tapped syrup on fresh fallen snow. We might not be able to guarantee that in St. Louis where the snow is brown and slushy, but you can celebrate the tradition in the comfort of your home by pouring some syrup over your ice cream or froyo. Get creative with it – add some chocolate chips, granola, or nuts to the sundae.

4. Roast it on butternut squash

You’ll be amazed how much some March syrup can perk up these late winter veggies. The two kinds of sweetness in the squash and the syrup harmonize beautifully.

5. Coat your bacon

Put some bacon strips on a cookie sheet in the oven, and with about five minutes left of cooking, brush some syrup onto the meaty strips. You won’t regret it.

6. Marinate your salmon

Mix a little syrup, Dijon, and soy sauce for a glaze to your salmon. The mixture of sweet and sharp blend perfectly with fish.

7. Make your PB&J a PB&S

Next time you reach for the jelly jar when making a PB&J, think again. Syrup spreads just as well as jelly, but the taste is completely different and mixes so well with the thick and creamy peanut butter. Add some bananas for a complete treat.

Maple Syrup Versus Pancake Syrup

You&aposre probably thinking, "Why can&apost I store my maple syrup the same way I store my pancake syrup?" The reason lies in the differences between the syrups. On the surface, these two may seem very similar, but there&aposs an important difference. 

Pancake syrup contains preservatives and large amounts of high fructose corn syrup that make it shelf stable. (Some contain no real maple syrup at all.) You can safely store it in your pantry, even after being opened, for months. But pure maple syrup contains one ingredient: maple syrup. No matter the grade, all maple syrup is just one ingredient. 

The only differences in grades of maple syrup are flavor and color, which is based on the season it&aposs harvested. Cooler months produce a lighter color and flavor, while warmer months produce a darker, more robust syrup.

The sap from maple trees is lightly processed to make the syrup, but no additional preservatives or corn syrups are added. This is what gives it that superb flavor and texture that lets you know instantly it&aposs pure maple syrup. And it&aposs what requires it to be stored differently, too.

15 healthy recipes sweetened with maple syrup

We’re talking maple syrup for this week’s edition of Sweet & Savory Saturdays, and that makes me all sorts of excited for two very important reasons.

First, because the stuff basically runs through my veins. Not necessarily because I was born in The Great White North (I was, but my parents are both Polish immigrants so that probably makes me quite Polish), but because I once did syrup shots and I’m pretty sure there’s some left floating around in my blood stream to this very day.

Second, because maple syrup is liquid gold (literally) when you’re trying to cut back on refined sugars, which seems to be #trending these days. And for good reason! Not only is maple syrup less processed and chemical-y than something like table or brown sugar, but it’s also lower on the glycemic index and contains trace minerals like manganese and zinc. Not half bad, eh?

And if you’re wondering how you can make the switch from refined sugars to something a little more natural, I’ve got 15 healthy recipes for ya that are sweetened with maple syrup.

But first! A look back at the top 3 recipes from last week’s Greek Yogurt roundup…

Best Recipes to Use Muskoka Maple Syrup

It’s that time of the year again when Muskoka’s forests are filled with all that liquid gold and maple syrup producers are busy collecting, boiling and bottling up what has become a Canadian household staple. “It’s a labour of love” says Brian O’Donoghue, operator of Sweet Muskoka located at Deerhurst Resort (who has been producing syrup since 1993!) Operating close to 1800 taps throughout the forests at Deerhurst, Brian, who has been boiling almost everyday since March 8, says that “This year’s a good season with the cool nights and warm sunny days.”

Although maple syrup is loved by most poured over a stack of fresh pancakes, there are so many other ways to enjoy it. With help from Deerhurst Resort’s Executive Chef, David Bakker, we’ve listed the best ways to use all that Muskoka gold.

Blueberry Maple Cocktail

Forget your usual standby and sip on this sweet cocktail!

  • 1.5 oz Blueberry vodka
  • 1 tsp Maple syrup
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • Splash of soda

  • 1 cup Ketchup
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Lemon – juice only
  • 1/4 cup Maple syrup

Heat oil in pot, sweat onions and garlic by stirring in oil and covering with lid (onions should not brown). Add vinegar and lemon juice and let simmer for 3 to 4 minutes. Add mustard, lemon zest, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup and simmer. Add ketchup and let simmer for another 5 minutes. Add Tabasco sauce to taste. The sauce can be prepared in advance and stored in fridge until ready to use.

Mesclun Green Salad with Cranberry-Maple Vinaigrette

You’ll make friends with this salad!

  • Salad
    Enough for 4 baby mesclun greens
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1/2 cup Raisins
  • 1/2 cup Dried Cranberries


  • 3/4 cup Canola oil
  • 1/4 cup Cranberry vinegar or white vinegar

Maple Glazed Pan Seared Scallops

An easy WOW at the dinner table.

  • 12 pc Sea scallops – dried well
  • 1/4 cup Maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp Grape seed oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Heat grape seed oil in a non stick sauté pan to medium high heat. Season scallops with salt and pepper. Place scallops in pan ensuring they do not stick. Once scallops have turned golden/caramel brown, carefully turn them over and repeat the process for the other side. Scallops should feel slightly firm to the touch when done. If they require further cooking for your preference, place in the oven at 350F for 5-7 minutes. Once scallops are cooked, brush with maple syrup on both sides and let rest before serving.

Maple Glazed Salmon

Tasty and healthy – your new go-to meal!

  • 4 x 6 oz Salmon fillets

  • 1 Clove of garlic – crushed
  • 1 tsp Fresh ginger – diced
  • 3 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 cup Maple syrup
  • 2 tsp Lemon juice

Heat the canola oil in a small pot, add the diced shallots, garlic and ginger. Cook and stir over low heat without browning. Once the shallots are softened, stir in the soy sauce, maple syrup and lemon juice. Continue to cook the liquid over medium heat, reducing by 1/3, or until the volume of liquid measures ¾ cup. Remove from heat and let cool. Preheat oven to 350F. Place the salmon in a pie plate or bowl and pour over half the cooled liquid. Turn the salmon to ensure it’s coated. Marinate for 5 to 10 minutes. Place the salmon on a baking sheet and roast for approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Brush the salmon with some of the remaining glaze 5 minutes before the end of cooking time. While the salmon is cooking, reheat the remaining glaze and drizzle over the fish when serving.

Maple Dumplings (Grand Péres)

Sweet Maple Syrup

Last year we took a trip to New Hampshire Sugarhouses at the end of the maple season. We got there in time to watch the last of the maple sap being processed. Did you know that it takes almost 40 gallons of sap to make just one gallon of the beautiful amber syrup? Sugar season lasts about 4 – 6 weeks, depending on the weather.

Our first stop that day was at Stuart and John’s Pancake House in Westmorland, NH which is only open on the weekends for their special pancake breakfast. The pancakes were some of the best I have ever eaten and served of course with their own maple syrup. After breakfast you can tour the boiling room where if you are lucky, they will be boiling syrup that day.

There are 4 different grades of maple syrup and I brought some of each home. I used the Grade B in the scones below and left out the maple flavoring.

Grade A Light Amber, is very light and has a mild delicate maple flavor.

Grade A Medium Amber, is a bit darker and has a more pronounced maple flavor. It is the most popular grade of table syrup.

Grade A Dark Amber, is darker yet with a stronger maple flavor.

Grade B, sometimes called Cooking Syrup, and is very dark with a very strong maple flavor, as well as some caramel flavor.
