Yesterday was National Maple Syrup day, a day to celebrate the sweet sap of the maple tree. Do not confuse the real deal with bottled “pancake syrup” that uses artificial everything. Real maple syrup is delicious and rich and full of natural flavors. It’s spendy because it uses so much sap! FORTY gallons of sap are needed to make ONE gallon of syrup! But it’s worth the cost!
Brussels sprouts work so well with the syrupy sweetness – So here is a super simple way to use that sweetness and get your vegetables too!
Here’s How to Do it:
Start by tossing everything together in a large bowl, making sure the vegetables are all evenly coated.
Use a non-stick baking sheet, or cover any baking sheet with a silpat pad or parchment paper.
Spread everything evenly in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Bake at 325° for about 10 minutes, then give it all a good stir.
Then bake another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the Brussels sprouts are fork tender.
