Here is a nifty way to add more sweet to your recipes in a pure way… maple flakes. I have found these maple flakes in Qc, NB, and NS, thus I know that they CAN be found in some places that sell maple products and other specialty treats. Sometimes the trick is to know what you are looking for. This is 100% REAL maple syrup formed into flakes. you can use the flakes directly, sprinkled on oatmeal or over salads, etc. There is a ‘maple mill’ that you can purchase that grinds the flakes into crystals, which is handy as well. I found that they last quite a while since the sweetness of maple is more intense than that of other sugars. They make a lovely garnish over specialty hot and frothy drinks that we are making this time of year!
