During the breakfast that wasn’t on Grimm, Season 2, episode 14 – there was a syrup mentioned. Spinach-Walnut-Basil-Maple Syrup. (Yes, we’re going to paraphrase these characters as if they are real people for a little while.) Monroe says his food keeps him healthy, Nick declines “I’m not even remotely interested in eating that.” Then the kicker, Monroe says basically that in order to be healthy you have to sacrifice taste.
We are here to let you know that Monroe misled you! We have created his recipe, and as promised, we are sharing it with you. You’ll never want plain maple again! The taste buds dance and sing when you eat our “Monroe’s Syrup”.
