Deadpool likes Pancakes!

Apparently Deadpool likes pancakes. A lot. Which is good. He must like Maple Syrup too then 🙂

Trivia Question Time:

If Deadpool makes 372,844 medium to large sized pancakes and…
IF an average serving of pancakes is 2 and…
IF an average recommended serving size of maple syrup for such a meal is 60 mL then…
HOW many bottles of maple syrup will Deadpool need to order from Maple Syrup in Israel?

372,844 pancakes divided by 2 pancakes per serving is 186,422 “servings” times 60 mL per serving is 11,185,320 mL of real maple syrup.

That’s 11,185 Liters of yummy stuff!

Which would be:

  • 47,276 bottles of 8 ounce, Grade A Organic
    or
  • 23,638 bottles of 16 ounce Grade A or Grade B syrup
    or
  • 11,819 bottles of 32 ounce Grade A or Grade B maple syrup
    or
  • 2954 jugs of our 1 gallon Grade B maple syrup.

 

We’d probably give Deadpool a discount.

But we’d need payment up front. Bank transfer of something. My wife doesn’t extend credit to potty mouths 😉

Braised Cabbage & Apples with Maple Syrup

Braised Cabbage & Apples with Maple Syrup

Tamar’s next great recipe was a cabbage side dish that can be made to cover a lot of ground: It’s Pareve, Gluten Free, Organic, and can be made kosher for Passover (depending on the oil you use- Canola Oil is usually considered kitniyot but can be swapped out for another oil to meet your specific Pesach requirements as needed).

Maple Rainbow Carrots

Maple Rainbow Carrots

Tamar Dunbar is in the process of starting up a business making home-made, all organic jams, jellies and preserves in Israel. She also spends a lot of quality time growing her own working materials and catering for special events. Her family joined us at our Pesach Seder this year and we had a blast!

She has kindly agreed to share some of her favorite maple syrup related recipes with us, and we’re sharing them with you 🙂

I grow my own “rainbow” carrots, but you can find them at some farmers’ markets and at health food (organic/natural/whole food) stores. They’re a really fun way to get kids to eat their veggies, and vary in taste. Best served immediately so the colors won’t “run.”

This recipe is Gluten Free

Recipe Notes

This can be kosher for Pesach if you use Maple Syrup that is certified as such.

If you want the sweetness of the maple syrup to come through more than the flavor of the maple, then use Grade "A" maple syrup.

If you want the maple flavor to come through, then use grade "B" maple syrup.
