Reviews forMaple Dumplings
"Loved this recipe and I didn't have to tweak it to my liking. Fabulous. Thank you"
"I live in Ohio, and I get maple syrup from a couple of places. There are many producers in the northeast Ohio and some in central Ohio. I buy my syrup in the spring from a local farm, and I get a gallon of grade A medium syrup (which I prefer to the light) for $40. If you live in a state where maple syrup is produced, and it is produced in many states besides Vermont, then simply do a Google search for maple syrup in your state. You'd be surprised how many people tap even a few trees and sell excellent syrup at far less than grocery store prices."
"This is great if you love maple syrup. If you have ever made homemade syrup, you would understand why it is so expensive."
"Aldi's sells 100% pure maple syrup at a very low cost. I got 8.5 ounces for $4. Also, if you want food that is one step above fantastic, sometimes you have to fork over the money for great ingredients. Sub par ingredients make sub par food."
"INSTEAD OF THE PRICY MAPLE SYRUP I USED CORN SYRUP WITH SOME MAPLE FLAVORING BUT I FOUND THE DUMPLINGS TOUGH."
"I'm making this."
"This recipe sounds good"
