Yen Can Cook ~ Maple Syrup Miso Chicken Wings

Maple syrup is a syrup usually made from the xylem sap of sugar maple, red maple, or black maple trees. Canada is the world’s top producer of maple syrup and it can safely be considered the national food. It is also no surprise that maple syrup is ranked the number one Canadian souvenir. Hubby received a bottle of maple syrup in a cute maple leaf shape from his ex-colleague last year and it was still sitting in my cabinet untouched until I stumbled upon this recipe in one of the Youtube channels that I follow.
