In Maine and across North East America, March is the season for maple syrup. Cold nights and warm days wake up the maple trees and the sap begins to run. Take advantage of this special time of year by using maple syrup to sweeten up winter root vegetables.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Next, chop an assortment of root vegetables—about 3 cups. These could include :
Then, toss with
- 2 Tablespoons melted butter
- 1 Tablespoon of maple syrup
- Pinch of sea salt
Roast in your preheated oven for 25 minutes or until browned
Enjoy making some maple memories!
