Why do we love the letter "M"? Because it stands for March and maple syrup. This is the time of year when the trees are tapped and the syrup flows, giving us a fresh batch of maple syrup to cook and bake with.
For Canadians lucky enough to live near a sugar shack, there's no better time than now to support a local producer and get cooking with the sweet sap. Or head to the grocery store and pick up a jug to celebrate maple syrup season along with the rest of the country.
Either way, here are Stefano's best maple syrup recipes for you to cook right now.
