The Maple Syrup Ina Garten Can't Stop Using
By Ashley Reut
Bon A​​ppétit got an inside look at Ina Garten’s pantry, and they're sharing all the secrets, from her favorite brand names to must-have pantry staples. One store-bought item she had was maple syrup, and she highly recommends one specific brand.
Maple syrup isn't just for pancakes and waffles; it's a versatile ingredient essential enough that Garten herself always keeps a supply. You can even use maple syrup to replace sugar in just about any recipe you want, and it adds a nice depth of flavor that's absent with sugar alone.
Garten’s favorite syrup is Stonewall Kitchen Maple Syrup. Freshly harvested and bottled in Maine, it is the perfect shade of golden brown and provides a surprisingly delicate sweetness to any dish.
