Maple syrup is poured over pancakes, waffles and oatmeal to make a delicious breakfast meal. Maple syrup is made in the late winter and early spring days when maple trees are tapped for their sweet sap. The sap is cooked down to create a liquid sugar that is sweet and tasty. Pancakes are traditionally served on Candlemas and Shrove Tuesday to celebrate renewal, family life and hopes for good fortune and happiness. It is customary in France to touch the handle of the frying pan and make a wish while the pancake is turned, holding a coin in the hand.
Maple Syrup and Pancakes - what a great set of ornaments to give as a gife anytime of the year.
