Maple Toddy

This Maple Toddy recipe is a delicious early spring treat that uses the sap from sugar maples to make a slightly sweet version of a hot toddy.

To make maple toddies you need to have a source of fresh sap. The sap is used to make maple syrup by reducing it for a long time. If you’re lucky enough to be making maple syrup, take some of the sap and use it to make a few rounds of maple toddies, it will help keep everyone warm and happy.
