Tanya Memme's Canadian Hometown Recipe for Maple Pecan Pie
"When I was a kid I used to love hay rides through the sugar bush with my best friend from kindergarten. Every year Sharon's dad Noel would teach us about Maple Trees and how to "tap" them for sap. We would empty the hanging buckets into a big cauldron and boil it over an open fire for hours. He let us sample it every few hours until it reached perfect consistency and taste.
My secret ingredient is pure Canadian Maple Syrup. This recipe is dear to my heart and reminds me of wonderful memories growing up in Canada."

• ½ cup pure maple syrup
