Maple


Being in Canada has its advantages, one of them being maple syrup and having lived in Quebec, the largest producer by far, I have had my fair share. Traditionally, it is often eaten with french toast, waffles or other breakfast items, but it is also a popular baking ingredient. The simplicity of maple and its sweetness makes it ideal for several  dishes bringing out its distinct unique flavour.

You must be wondering by now, why am I blabbing on about maple syrup?


Well, yesterday I had the opportunity to partake in Maple in the County within the Prince Edward County area in Ontario. A celebration of the first harvest of the year but primarily a festival that highlights local businesses and maple syrup producers.

My journey first took me to Waupoos Estates Winery for their brunch and wine tasting, followed by The County Cider Company and Black River Cheese Factory. A day filled with wine, cheese and maple syrup, what more could a girl ask for. The accent of the day was having the chance to sample maple ice wine. It was quite delightful in taste for a dessert wine as it was not overpowering but still lingered with a smooth and sweet finish.

The day was filled with relaxation, adventures and several detours! Maple syrup is an iconic product and is one that is versatile. Perhaps my next baking session will consist of maple frosting cupcakes!
