I’m not sure it’s possible to be from Vermont and not love recipes that use real maple syrup. Since my Dad was born and raised in Vermont, we have always had real Vermont maple syrup. If your only exposure to maple syrup is from imitation syrups in the grocery store, please go find a jug of real maple syrup to use in these recipes.
24 Main Dish Recipes That Use Real Maple Syrup
Maple syrup is one of my favorite sweeteners. Our two acres have quite a few maple trees but we don’t sugar. We don’t have the equipment or the time. A few years ago, there was a knock on our door. It was my neighbor’s son wanting to know if we minded if he sugared our maple trees in return for some maple syrup. I told him to go right ahead! It works out great for both of us, and I always have maple syrup on hand.
Most people enjoy maple syrup on pancakes or waffles or used in some sort of dessert recipe. While those are all delicious ways to use maple syrup, there are quite a few main dish recipes that use real maple syrup as well. Here are just a few to get you started.
