M is for Maple Syrup

I never realized how polarizing a topic "syrup" could be until I married my husband. I've always enjoyed real, pure maple syrup. I have fond memories of helping friends make maple syrup at their sugar bush, and I even lived on Maple Street.  We had over 75 maple trees in our yard! Soon after our wedding, I found out that my husband always used Mrs. Buttersworth. Now, I didn't begrudge my husband for liking Mrs. Buttersworth, but I was shocked to learn that he actually preferred Mrs. Buttersworth over the real-deal maple syrup. It's taken me a few years, but he is finally a convert to real maple syrup. So if you've never had maple syrup, it's definitely worth the try (and the few extra dollars)! 

So, what do you put on your pancakes or waffles?
