Cooking with Maple Syrup
We use our maple syrup instead of granulated sugar to sweeten a variety of foods.

We especially like to start the day with a grapefruit half, drizzled with maple syrup! (Faith's father taught her this one at a very early age.)

Now, Faith sweetens homemade applesauce, winter squash, chai tea, apple pie, pumpkin pie, oatmeal, and many other dishes. Here are a few recipes to try:

Apple Pie
5-6 medium-sized cooking apples (the variety is your choice)
1 C sugar
2 T flour
2 t apple pie spice (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg mixture)
3-4 T maple syrup
3 T butter/margarine
Pie crust (top and bottom)

Peel, core and slice the apples thinly into a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix the sugar, apple pie spice and flour. Sprinkle this mixture over the apples and toss. Let this stand while you prepare the crust; this gives the sugar time to make the apples "sweat".

Prepare the crust according to your favorite recipe. Place the bottom crust into the pie plate. Fill with the apple mixture and then dot with small cubes of the butter. Drizzle with the maple syrup.

Apply the top crust. Flute the edges and make vents in the top for the steam to escape.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30-40 minutes. Test the pie by piercing the apples through the steam slots, to see if they are done; if not, continue baking.

Baked Acorn Squash
(This recipe is adaptable for any quantity of, five, or whatever.)

Maple syrup

Slice off the end of each squash and scoop out the seeds. Slice the squash into rings and arrange in a greased casserole dish. Sprinkle the rings with cinnamon. Dot with butter. Drizzle maple syrup over the rings generously.

Cover with aluminum foil. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Test the squash with a fork to see if it is done; if not, continue baking.

Apple Crisp
4 cored apples
1 C apple juice
4 T maple syrup

Slice 4 cored apples into a small greased casserole dish. (You do not need to peel the apples, unless you so choose.)

Mix 4 tablespoons maple syrup into 1 cup of apple juice.

Sprinkle the apples with cinnamon. Pour the juice mixture over the apples. Sprinkle granola over the apples.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the apples are cooked to your desire. (Some people like them fully cooked and some people like them crunchy.)
