Happy National Maple Syrup Day!
December 17 is a day to celebrate, appreciate and enjoy maple syrup. Pure maple syrup, that is; not pancake syrup, which contains no maple syrup at all.
Celebrate by sweetening oatmeal with maple syrup, topping vanilla ice cream with warm maple syrup, or drizzling syrup over a delicious stack of pancakes, waffles or french toast.
If you’re feeling extra festive about National Maple Syrup Day (and have maple trees in your backyard), celebrate maple syrup by making your own! Learn how.

Replace liquid sweeteners with an equal amount of syrup. Find out the health benefits of maple syrup.
