A Message From A Past President

Just the thought of pure Maine maple syrup brings to mind years gone by for many of us. Maybe the memory is the steamy aroma of a pot of boiling sap on the kitchen stove, or perhaps a trip to a local sugarhouse for a fresh taste straight from the evaporator, or grandma’s pancakes drizzled with the delicious, all-natural treat.

The Maine Maple Producers Association is pleased that Beth has collected recipes from all over Maine and written Maine Maple Beyond Pancakes to help us promote an awareness of our fine maple syrup beyond the walls of our local sugarhouses. You’ll find tantalizing recipes for every setting – the family kitchen, the formal dining room, and the niches of professional cooks and chefs everywhere.

Whether you are a first-time user or, like many of us, can’t imagine a meal without maple syrup, you will find new and exciting ways to cook with maple in Maine Maple Beyond Pancakes. Each recipe, several with their own story, has its unique flavor and pleasant aroma. Make these recipes your own, enjoy reading tidbits about our passionate sugarmakers, visit our sugarhouses, and create your own maple stories and traditions.

May you delight in using pure Maine maple syrup in your kitchen as much as we enjoy producing it.

Eric Ellis, Past President
