What Maple Syrup Should I Use for Maple Dijon Mustard Glaze?

Look for a high grade maple syrup with a dark color and robust taste. I personally enjoy this Syrup and Honey combination from Tree Hive, as it adds an interesting flavor profile to the glaze.

In addition to getting a high quality maple syrup, I recommend picking up a good quality Dijon mustard. While any Dijon will do, a high quality brand such as Maille will add an expanded flavor profile to your dish and give it a slightly more interesting taste!
