15 delectable recipes featuring maple syrup any true canadian will love

In honour of National Maple Syrup Day on December 17, we're sharing our favourite maple syrup recipes our fellow Canadians are sure to adore.

Our maple syrup usage is typically confined to breakfast time. We pour it on pancakes, waffles and crepes with a heavy hand and are done with it. But, maple syrup is a great natural sweetener that can be added to everything from desserts to savoury dishes.

Go the traditional route and include this Canadian pantry staple in your butter tarts, crispy coconut tuiles, mincemeat turnovers, cookies, fudge, and pudding. Or, take your entrées—like salmon and swiss chard, chicken thighs and couscous, chicken drumsticks and chickpea salad, pork fajitas and short ribs—up a level by cooking the meat in maple syrup.

The best part about adding maple syrup to any meal? You can't really go wrong. But to ensure your dishes are top notch, flip through the slideshows for our favourite tried and truly tested to perfection recipes featuring maple syrup.

Best Maple Butter Tarts

Make your own scrumptious custard tarts instead of buying them. This recipe is different than the tradition one you may be used to—it calls for maple syrup instead of corn syrup, and chocolate and pecans instead of raisins.
