Giveaway (CLOSED): Win 1 of 2 Giftbags of maple syrup and honey from Clarks RRP £25

Clarks Maple SyrupOn my trip to Canada I was having a chat with my guide, Darrell:-

“Where does maple syrup come from?” I asked, he looked at me strangely and replied “well, maple trees!”.  I burst out laughing and said that I knew where it came from and I meant to ask the question whereabouts does maple syrup come from.  Darrell later admitted that he thought that it had been a slightly odd question, as he thought that I would have realised that  it came from maple trees, but having been asked very obvious questions by jetlagged people  in the past took it at face value.

It turns out that maple syrup can be made whenever maple trees grow, but most, and the best comes from Quebec, which is where Clarks source their maple syrup from.

    Use honey for all sorts of things – smother the chicken in it before roasting. Add to vinegar & warm water for a gargle if I have a sore throat. If a cut anywhere is not healing fast enough, smother it with honey & cover with a bandage – worked brilliant on an ulcer on my husbands leg.
