In April, in her column in the Chronicle Herald, Cindy Day, a fan of pure Nova Scotia maple syrup, shared a series of maple-infused recipes that were submitted to her from all over Atlantic Canada. As proud partners, we provided a delicious gift box of goodies for her to gift away. In return we all get to enjoy these wonderful ideas - mapleicious ways to enjoy Acadian Maple, and of course maple from the many other maple harvesters here in Nova Scotia.
Here's one from Christine Morton
