Maple Syrup & Recipes for those who LOVE it

A Round Up for those who LOVE Maple Syrup :: Five Little Homesteaders

I came to my love for maple syrup later in life.

It makes me sad, honestly.  I wasted so many good years where I could have been eating maple syrup… but instead, I ate “table syrup”  aka high fructose syrup aka YUCK.

And I have to admit this, because, well, there might be some of you out there like me who think you prefer table syrup over the real deal.  But let me tell you, you don’t.  Maple syrup is where it’s at.  Give it a shot and I promise, it won’t disappoint.  That said, the purpose of this post today is two fold:

  1. I’m giving you some links to 15+ AMAZING waffle and pancake recipes.  (You’ll need these because you’ll want to test my theory that maple syrup is awesome, of course.)
  2. For the next week, I’m accepting entries in an AMAZING giveaway for 32 oz of Mohawk Valley Trading Company’s – dark, robust maple syrup – .

Benefits of Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is a natural, plant-based sweetener made from the sap of maple trees.  It is packed with polyphenols, which are plant-based compounds that work like antioxidants and can provide anti-aging benefits. Maple Syrup also contains zinc, which can help prevent colds and other illnesses.
