A Taste of Canada ~ All Things Maple

Maple Bacon and Perogies

I can't find anything online about Maple Bacon and Perogies.  I've never heard of them before as a duet.  Amazingly there were many links to bacon perogies, maple syrup on perogies, and many other "interesting" variations.  I think I will remain in the dark about this particular Canadian taste sensation.

Maple Bacon or Sausage

Yes it is a real thing.  My grandkids just pour maple syrup on regular bacon or sausage.

Maple Butter

Maple butter, also known as maple cream or maple spread, is a confection made from maple syrup, by heating the syrup to approximately 112 °C, cooling it to around 52 °C, and beating it until it reaches a smooth consistency. It is usually made from Grade A Light Amber syrup, and is a light tan color.

Maple Bacon Donuts

Not on our A Taste of Canada List but discovered during my online search for all things maple, let me introduce the maple bacon donut.  Seriously, I would love this.

Have you ever noticed that maple fudge is in every tourist attraction in Canada?  Probably because it is just so delicious.

What more can I say?  It is the base from which all these other wonders are created.

Maple Taffy

Maple taffy is a sugar candy made by boiling maple sap past the point where it would form maple syrup, but not so long that it becomes maple butter or maple sugar.  I blogged about our adventures with Maple Taffy or Maple Candy at
