A Tasty Taste of Agriculture

Making your own farm fresh salad dressing is a snap, and something the kids can easily lend a hand with. Try this amazing Canadian farm inspired dressing to add a special touch to your salad.


Maple Mustard Dressing


1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup cider vinegar

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 garlic glove, crushed

A pinch of salt and pepper.


Combine in small jar with lid and shake, shake, shake. Serve right away, or store in the refrigerator.


Fun Facts:

  • Eighty percent of the world’s maple syrup comes from Canada

  • It takes bout 40 litres of sap to make one litre of maple syrup

  • A tree takes about 40 years before it’s big enough to tap

  • Only three of 13 species of maple trees native to Canada are used for syrup

  • The Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the provincial governments have slightly different classification systems, both based on colour and taste. Category 1 (extra light, light, and medium grades) and Category 2, (an amber grade) have maple flavours that are “typical” for their colour grade. Category 3, which includes the dark grade and any other ungraded colours, also contains traces of caramel, plant bud or sap flavours. In Quebec, dark maple syrup can only be used for industrial purposes.
