The Sweetest Finish

No breakfast is complete without maple syrup. Whether you enjoy atop waffles, pancakes or French toast, maple syrup is the quintessential breakfast accompaniment. Saturday, December 17 is National Maple Syrup Day - a day to pay homage to a breakfast staple. This season we are loving our newest addition to the TASTE pantry, Finding Home Maple Syrup from Finding Home Farms.

Finding Home Farms, located in New York's Hudson Valley, was founded by husband and wife team Dana and Laura Putnam. Dana's family tradition of maple syrup making transformed into a full-time business in 2014. Their process of making maple syrup hasn’t changed too much over the years and they are still producing certified organic, handcrafted maple syrup. This delicious maple syrup as well as Finding Home Pancake Mix can be found in our Farmhouse Breakfast Gift Set.

While this syrup makes the sweetest finish to pancakes, it can be used to sweeten so much more. Try some of these recipes...
