  • In a small saucepan, combine the pure maple syrup and unsalted butter over medium heat.
  • Stir the mixture constantly until the butter is completely melted and incorporated with the maple syrup. This should take about 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the salt and vanilla extract to the saucepan. Continue stirring the sauce gently to ensure all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Allow the sauce to simmer over low to medium heat for about 5-7 minutes until it thickens slightly. Stir occasionally to prevent burning and to ensure an even consistency.
  • After the cooking time is up, remove the saucepan from the heat.
  • Let the maple syrup sauce cool down for a few minutes before serving. The sauce will thicken further as it cools.

Maple syrup sauce is a delightful sweet sauce that originates from Canada, known for its rich and natural maple flavor. It is simple to prepare and enhances the taste of numerous dishes, making it a favorite among those with a sweet tooth and a desire for something special.

Facts about the sauce:

  1. Maple syrup, the main ingredient of this sauce, is made from the sap of sugar maple trees. The process involves tapping the trees and then boiling down the sap to concentrate the sugars and create the syrup we know and love.
  2. Canada is the world’s leading producer of maple syrup, with the province of Quebec being the largest contributor.
  3. Maple syrup is not only a delicious sweetener but also contains several essential minerals like manganese and zinc, as well as antioxidants.
  4. The production of maple syrup is often associated with the traditional and cultural identity of many regions in Canada and the northeastern United States.
  5. The harvesting of maple syrup is typically done in the early spring during the “maple sugaring season” when temperatures fluctuate between freezing at night and thawing during the day, allowing the sap to flow.
  6. Maple syrup is graded based on color and flavor, with Grade A being the most common for table use, and Grade B being darker and more intense, often used for cooking and baking.

Enjoy this delicious maple syrup sauce drizzled over your favorite breakfast items or used as a glaze for savory dishes, and savor the natural goodness of Canada’s liquid gold!
