We thought we’d bring you a recipe for National Celiac Awareness month that contains maple syrup because it can be a wonderful alternative for vegans who prefer to not use honey. We recently were gifted a half-gallon of fresh Vermont maple syrup and have been going a bit crazy with recipes containing this sumptuous sap; any excuse to eat it! We have to stress that, when cooking with syrup, it makes all of the difference to cook with real syrup, not the stuff that is commonly hawked on Saturday morning commercials. A lot of the commercial syrup sold isn’t even true maple syrup at all, it’s just high fructose corn syrup. True maple syrup is a bit more watery than the commercial stuff, and has a much richer flavor.
