So this is when my Canadian roots start to show – Roasted Maple Sweet Potatoes are one of our favourite ways to have this fabulous potato. They taste delicious, look wonderful and are a nice change from normal spuds. Maple syrup is the essence of Canada and it’s not just for pancakes (why in the world anyone would put Golden Syrup on pancakes is beyond me) it’s great in muffins as well – if you fancy some baking you can look at our Maple Pineapple Cupcakes.
