Pure maple syrup has been a part of North American life since before the continent was settled by Europeans.

Pure maple syrup's uses go beyond morning pancakes or waffles - it adds depth of flavor and complexity to everything from beverages and main dishes to salads and desserts.

Pure maple syrup is 100 percent natural and free of any coloring or additives (make sure you buy the right stuff!).

It has fewer calories than corn syrup or honey, and it does not contain any high fructose corn syrup.

It also contains vitamins and antioxidants, which can delay or prevent free radical induced diseases.

These recipes liven up classic American favorites with the subtle sweetness of maple.
