March is maple month in New England. Warm days and cool nights mean the sap is running! Sugar maple trees are being tapped to collect sap to make maple syrup. While there are a lot of fun ways to celebrate maple month, here at Calef’s we try out different maple syrups and experiment with ways to use maple in our kitchens. Here are some of our favorite ways to use maple, from adding a drop into a coffee to creating baked treats.
