Posted for ZWT 4! If you're looking for sweetness, but with extra richness and flavor, try adding maple syrup to your recipes. This maple syrup glaze is a great addition to meat or fish - especially good on ham and salmon. It is also fantastic drizzled over vegetables before roasting them! Recipe comes from Sweet Maple: Life, Lore and Recipes from the Sugarbush by James M. Lawrence

This recipe is so easy and so good! I used it for boneless chicken breasts which I marinated for about 5 hours. Perfect! Be sure to reserve some marinade for brushing over while really made a difference. Thanks for a keeper recipe! Made for Canada Day, 2008.

Mmmmm this is a great barbecue marinade and so easy/quick to put together! I used this for chicken and ham slices and they came out so good. Only thing I did different was to marinate the meat for 30-45mins since I was in a hurry to eat! lol But I didn't sacrifice the taste as once in the oven, I would baste the meat every now and then. Thanks you once again for a terrific dish :) Made for WZT4.

What a great marinade recipe! I chose to marinade our pork chops in this and wow did they come out great! We look forward to trying other meats in this marinade.
