In 2010, it was decided that Canada needed a special day to mark the beginning of the syrup rising in the maple trees. Hence the start of a great new holiday! Happy Canadian Maple Syrup Day! In honor of the day, I found 8 sweet maple syrup recipes for you to try!
Maple syrup day is about celebrating the natural gift of maple syrup, a spark of hope in the coldness of winter. And we could certainly use a little spark on these cold winter days! And what would be better to celebrate with than something made from warm maple syrup?

I love this holiday because in essence we are celebrating the gifts of nature! The taste of maple syrup is rich and delicious and a far better alternative than regular table syrup which is made mostly of corn syrup.
