It's that time of year - when the days are warm and the nights are cold - the sap runs. Did you know that Canada produces 71% of the world's maple syrup and of that, 91% comes from Quebec? I recently read that maple syrup is being investigated as a possible preventative for Alzheimer's.
I was shopping at Atwater Market. This stall, which sells all kinds of maple products, is located outside all winter. I bought some maple butter - a decadent spread. Maple syrup on yogourt, on pancakes, on French toast or added to a recipe instead of sugar. Maple-flavoured syrup will never find its way into my home - only pure 100% maple syrup.
