Cinnamon, Nutmeg & Cloves

There’s something special about baking spices: they’re evocative, they’re sensory, and of course, they’re delicious in just about everything Grandma makes. So naturally, we couldn’t think of a better way to honour that memory than with a PURE maple syrup infused with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. These warm spices heighten the magic of maple syrup and are well suited to any number of culinary pursuits – traditional baking, ciders and teas, and even some exotic North African and Middle Eastern dishes, where the interplay of sweet and savoury are essential.
