    Today we tip the hat to our Canadian friends for National Maple Syrup. Maple syrup is usually made from the xylem sap of sugar, red, or black maple trees. Maple syrup is often eaten with pancakes, waffles or oatmeal. It is also used to flavor fritters, ice cream, fresh fruit, sausages and whatever works for you. Maple syrup was first collected and used by the indigenous peoples of North America. The Canadian province of Quebec refined it and is by far the largest producer. It won’t kill a cat but as a sugar, it shouldn’t be given to them. Woot Woot Québécois!

    actually very tasty.
    Mmmmmmm maple syrup. I love a few drops of pure 100% Canadian maple syrup on my bacon.
    HRH Shadz has eaten a very good dinner of duck & turkey and currently is inside much to her disgust. I suspect she will spent the night in the window sill by a partially open window sniffing the breeze. We had lower temps today which was very comfortable for human, animals and plants.

    As a Canadian, I love maple syrup!!!

    But not on Brussels Sprouts! 😉

    Excellent on waffles and in yogurt!

    The wee tuxie sporting the maple leaf – squeee!!!

    Tree Kit might want to know that the trees are in fact tapped for the syrup.

    And if one visits a cabane à sucre (sugar shack) one can see the process. And then enjoy the fresh syrup, boiled up and poured on (clean) snow where it forms hard maple candy. 🙂


    You’ll find a tray of these sweet treats at the wormhole!

    Actually maple syrup and sugar can be an ingredient in marinades and incorporated into savoury dishes.

    And many enjoy it on crêpes, whether savoury or sweet.

    Most of the world’s maple syrup comes from here in Québec, though it is also produced in Ontario and Atlantic Canada, and in Vermont and northern New York State.

    Lagatta; sorry idk your abbreviation; that’s actually REALLY interesting to know! Thanks for the extra information!

    I like the slightly-savory maple flavored treats we can sometimes find in the South; typically anything with a little sea salt or protein-based. Anything without it is cavity-inducing when it doesn’t produce an instant headache. :/ Which saddens me, because I absolutely ADORE the flavor!
