Strawberry Pie, Maple Syrup and Joie de Vivre!

I just won’t eat fresh strawberries any more without maple syrup.  The sweet tang of freshly sliced berries dripping with the rich golden silky flavour of real maple syrup, well just try it.  I guarantee you will give it a second glance.

My sweetie and I are RV travellers, and two summer ago, after a lovely long trek through the US south and out to the Maritimes, we stopped just outside of Quebec City to stay for what was supposed to be one night.

We’d had some mechanical difficulties with the RV – (that’s a whole other blog post) and I just wasn’t ready to head for home.  So we decided to stop, following a random campground sign about 30 miles west of Quebec City.

Strawberry Pie is the perfect pie for Spring! An easy recipe, and look at those beautiful pie crust techniques. We add a special ingredient to our homemade strawberry pie. Delicious anytime at all.

What we found was a little slice of heaven, wonderful campers who were so helpful and welcoming.  

Once we were settled and had shared some wine with our new neighbours who had helped us back in, we received a bowl of fresh strawberries and Quebec Maple Syrup, with instructions.

I was a bit overcome, I must say, probably because we were just so darn tired, but that was it for me.  Strawberries must now have maple syrup.  But what would it taste like in a strawberry pie?
