New Hampshire Maple Recipes

The New Hampshire Maple Producers Association published a spiral bound collection of over 200 recipes from generations of maple producers and members of their community. A telling quote by a farm woman (unidentified) in the beginning of the book sums up the delicious nature of the recipes “Almost any good recipe is better with maple sugar or syrup added.” Following are a few stand outs we think are worth trying.
