Can you find a purer piece of Canadiana than Maple Syrup, nectar of the great white northern gods (ok, and parts of the the Northern US too).

If all you use this springtime elxir for is on top of pancakes, you are missing a world of culinary delight: dipping sauce for bacon, combine with soy sauce for a fabulous salmon marinade, mix with butter to top off a squash that will melt your heart, stir into your morning oatmeal, fold it into vanilla ice cream, splash it onto your baked beans, mix it with a salad vinaigrette, the ultimate topping for elf spaghetti, or just straight up shots. ¬†And, to boot, its good for you, nature’s best sweetener.

A few photos from a nearby maple sugar festival.

Recently enjoyed holidays in southern climes – a few images of what caught my eye (I particularly love the crazy colour and texture transitions on this trunk of the palm tree in the first image).
