I've been thinking of kick starting this blog back up. What better article to start with than this article from the Atlantic on why cheap maple syrup is actually better. For anyone who knows my family, my great-grandfather, grandfather, and now uncles run a family farm in south western Ontario - Shady Walnut Farm. My uncles host a pancake day where hundreds come and enjoy hot pancakes cooked by my cousins served with fresh maple syrup. Think I might need to go and grab myself a bowl.
