Maple Syrup for a Cause

Posted by Amie / November 7, 2013

Montreal maple syrup Christmas fundraiser"Eek, that's expensive," said my friend mine when the vendor told her the price of the tin of the light maple syrup at the Atwater Market. It takes a whole lot of maple sap to cook down to syrup to make just one can of the sweet, local treat. Every maple tire come sugar shack season and every year-round stack of pancakes or crepes (Aunt Jemima has no place in Quebec...) comes with sugar-sweet luxury. But this fall you can buy the treat and feel gosh-darn good about it because part of the proceeds from sales of maple syrup tins with a big, red Christmas present in the shape of a heart held by a yellow, cartoon mascot named "Siropcool" are going to the St-Justine Foundation at the St-Justine Children's Hospital to help ensure that children and mothers-to-be receive a high standard of care.

The syrup will be available at IGA grocery stores throughout the province from Nov. 7, 2013 until Jan. 1, 2014.

What can you do with this maple syrup? Why, Siropcool's crazy flash website has lots of options for you, both savoury and sweet: maple-grilled corn, maple mac & cheese, maple dumplings, maple-vegetable bread, and even a "maple shepherd's pie" with cocoa, mangoes, and thick, creamy yogurt.
If you're not an IGA shopper or you have a couple bucks to space, another option is to buy your Quebec maple syrup at a market and then give a Christmas donation to the St-Justine Foundation. That works too. Though you won't get the recipe for Maple Mousse (more like a maple Italian meringue, I think) on top of the tin. It won't ruin Christmas. You can even start your good Christmas giving karma in November by making maple-glazed carrots or parsnips for American Thanksgiving, or a tarte à l'érable any night of the week. And for some gluten-free, dairy-free maple ideas, including a pouding chomeur and sticky toffee pudding, try here.
