A Little Tip... Pure Maple Syrup

by Corinne

I love the idea of all natural pure maple syrup... you know, it's pure and all (instead of high fructose corn syrup and the like). It makes me feel better about feeding my kids pancakes for dinner when they have "natural" sugar in pure maple syrup instead of processed sugar (high fructose corn syrup) in the more inexpensive (unfortunately) and more popular brands. I know this sounds pretty ridiculous but bear with me! Pure maple syrup is becoming more and more popular, and you can get it at Costco now in a huge container (and we all know that means better savings!)
Here is why I love the "idea" though... because pure maple syrup doesn't taste as good to me as the cheap stuff I was raised on. (boo hoo!) But then one day I came across Target's brand of pure maple syrup (somewhat reasonably priced btw) and they had a Cinnamon flavor too, and all they had done was add cinnamon sticks! I came home to my pure maple syrup that I was struggling to make myself love, added a couple cinnamon sticks, and viola! Delicious cinnamon pure maple syrup. Problem solved. You're welcome.
I guess you could just add cinnamon sticks to any maple syrup for delicious cinnamon maple sugary goodness. Cinnamon just makes things taste better! I add powdered cinnamon to my pancake batter as well, with mashed bananas. Delish!

I use pure maple syrup to sweeten tons of stuff. It is amazing on oatmeal and just a tad in smoothies.

We love pure maple syrup but haven't tried the cinnamon, sounds yum! I have the best allergen free cookie recipe that uses pure maple syrup. We love the stuff!

We are big pure maple syrup fans. However, since it's pricey, I cringed every time I saw the kids lurp a half a cup all over their waffles. My solution? A cheap condiment bottle with a narrow tip, perfect for precision syrup application. No expensive puddles left on the plate, and everyone is happy.

I used pure maple syrup this year to sweeten the sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving and everyone loved them. Its the best.
