Canadian Maple Syrup
Canadian Maple Syrup (imported)
It should not be necessary to say "Canadian" when referring to Maple Syrup, but, as with many other things, there are so many imitations out there that it is sometimes better to validate your product.
Maple syrup is a syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees. Our maple syrup has an amber colour and a rich taste. It is absolutely lovely with cheese on a croissant!
Most people will walk just pass maple syrup when seeing the price tag. Yes, it is expensive, but so is a good bottle of wine!
I first tasted maple syrup years ago on one of my many tasting experiences. Buying "maple" syrup in the local supermarket resulted in refraining to buy anything maple if it is not from Canada. Don't be fooled by a local product that consist of mainly normal sugary syrup with a maple flavour.
By default one would recon that it is only good for your normal breakfast table. On a slice of fresh sourdough or croissant, pancakes, you know the drill.
A friend of me mentioned that he uses it with meat as well (lovely with fatty pork) or even in a potato bake. I've tried it as a replacement for mustard with my braai and it was fabulous! Give it a try, you would not be disappointed.
Product of Canada, 250ml of pure "A Grade" Maple Syrup. Need I say more? If you have not tasted maple syrup before, spoil yourself with one of these little glass bottles of pure pleasure!
At this stage you can get the 250ml Maple Syrup in a glass bottle at the Deli. We are investigating whether we can import maple syrup in a tin, would work out much cheaper so that it can be part of your daily diet.
Maple Syrup in a glass bottle
Maple syrup outside of Canada is normally sold like this in small glass bottles. The locals in Canada buys it in larger tins (500ml+) and it is part of their daily diet.
