Birch syrup boasts a unique flavour that has been described as a combination of honey, caramel, molasses, and licorice, with fruity overtones and a tangy balsamic aftertaste, with the exact flavours varying between years and trees. Unlike maple syrup, a small amount of birch syrup is all you need to introduce the rich and tangy flavours into your daily meals.

This syrup can be used as a glaze or marinade on your favourite meat, dressing for your salad, or to spice up your stir-fry. We also recommend adding it to your favourite desserts- whether its drizzled over your cheesecake, mixed in your cake batter, cinnamon buns, or pudding. 

 Some of our personal favourite dishes include:

  • marinated steaks, chicken, and fish
  • drizzled over a homemade cheesecake
  • sauce on our grilled vegetables and stir-fries
  • salad dressing and vinaigrettes
  • topping off our ice cream
  • mixed in butter tarts, cookies, or cinnamon buns, and  
  • baked into hard candies
