To complement this issue’s celebration of all things maple, we dove into our recipe archive to highlight the dishes that have stood the test of time, both with readers and in our own kitchens. From pecan pie–style chewy maple bars to addictive maple-glazed ribs made with just nine ingredients, these standbys will carry you through this sweet season. We also added one new recipe for crisp-tender waffles that are bound to become a regular part of your maple repertoire.
This recipe has long been a reader favorite for its ease of preparation and its sweet-tangy flavor (it’s also a cinch to double for a crowd). A long, slow roast allows the ribs to melt into tenderness, while a final brush with a maple-sweetened sauce brings them to lacquered perfection.
This delicious ice cream recipe gets its rich flavor from two simple steps: concentrating the maple syrup by simmering it for 10 minutes, and toasting the walnuts.
Make every Sunday breakfast one you’ll remember with our crisp and fluffy waffle recipe. Adding cornstarch helps lighten the batter and ensures a crispier result.
The combination of sweet brown sugar, crunchy pecans, and pure maple syrup in these chewy maple nut bars is tough to beat. Pecan pie lovers in particular will go nuts for these maple nut bars — the handheld variation of the popular dessert.
Each spring we look forward to maple dumplings, a decadent and boldly delicious maple-season treat.
