The Versatility of Maple Syrup

An ingredient with a unique taste


Maple naturally enhances the flavour of food, and easily replaces other sweeteners in recipes.

Few ingredients can claim to be as delicious AND as versatile as maple. From main course to appetizer, drinks and dessert, maple’s unique flavour and range of textures lend it to a virtually infinite variety of combinations. No wonder so many leading chefs have added it to their repertoires!

This is not only the case in great restaurants but in home kitchens as well. Maple has its place in comfort food as much as in refined cuisine. A flavour-enhancer par excellence, maple bears the distinct advantage of being a beneficial replacement for sugar and all other usual sweeteners in any recipe.

For most recipes, maple syrup can easily be used to replace an equal amount of sugar. To substitute for a cup of sugar, just reduce the quantity to 60 ml (¼ cup) of liquid in the recipe. If syrup is to be used to replace a liquid sweetener like honey or agave syrup, just keep the quantity the same.

Chefs


Maple, in all its forms, has an open invitation to the greatest tables, as it never fails to bring with it a hint of audacity and a host of pleasures. And many have adopted it as their own: Chefs, bakers, brewers, winemakers, ice cream makers, and caterers use maple with a passion… because it’s an exceptional product that invites them to reinvent themselves. Incredible maple!
