Gingerbread & Marshmallow Infused Maple Syrup
We introduce to you our Gingerbread & Marshmallow flavor as the scary old wicked witch of the woods - Baba Yaga!
As ambiguous as she is creepy, Baba Yaga is an anomaly – both a maternal, mother-nature figure and an evil villain who enjoys eating those who fail to complete her tasks. Baba means something akin to “old woman” or “grandmother”, while Yaga has conflicting theories of meaning ranging from “snake” to “wicked.”
The most common portrayal of Baba Yaga is as an old woman, who's depicted as skinny, with iron teeth, and has a nose so long that it touches the ceiling when she sleeps.
Baba Yaga is commonly illustrated as riding around on a mortar rather than a broom, wielding a pestle as both a flying aid and a wand. Tales involving her usually take place at her chicken-legged hut, deep in the woods. Legend says her hut is surrounded by a fence made of human bones.
This syrup is great on or with:
Baked goods, pancakes, waffles, granola, in coffee & tea, on desserts, ice cream, yogurt & cocktails.
WytchWood syrup starts with the sap from maple trees grown in central Vermont. The sap is then boiled in the Spring and infused to create a delicious Gingerbread & Marshmallow Maple Syrup. Each bottle is hand wax-sealed, blessed and unlike anything you have ever experienced. Each and every bottle is represented by a God, Goddess, Pagan Sabbath or Folklore Icon. They are designed as libations but can be used for anything Kitchen Witch related as well.
I love marshmallow-flavored stuff, so I was very excited about trying this. And let me say, I was not disappointed! I love the combination of gingerbread and marshmallow. It's absolutely delicious, and now my new favorite syrup! I'm ruined for any syrup that's not WytchWood, and I can't wait to try some other flavors!
I've loved stories about Baba Yaga since i was a kid. My sister got this for me as a gift. I was worried that it would be too sweet but it's just right, not overwhelming at all. I would definitely purchase again.
Please tell me she's a regular fixture syrup and not just a seasonal. I ADORE this syrup. It's so comforting and not overwhelmingly sweet. This really steps up my flapjack game.
So, full disclosure, Baba Yaga Surup was supposed to be a gift; however, in the interest of said gift-giving, I told myself it was only right to make absolutely certain this was going to be an excellent addition to the planned breakfast basket.
Well, it's gone..all gone. Maple, gingerbread, marshmallow. I'm utterly bewitched. Looks like the third Yule order will include a replacement bottle of Baba Yaga.
Sincerely, happily addicted,
This was a fav amongst the adults and children in my family. We tried it on homemade waffles, vanilla bean ice cream, and my morning latte. The flavour is amazing and it went great with everything. We have become WytchWood customers for life.
Upon seeing the flavor profile for this WytchWood Syrup, I knew I needed to have it in my hot cocoa. Needless to say, they have concocted a beautiful blend - it retains its pure maple taste with undercurrents of the gingerbread and marshmallow, a mix of both spice and sweetness. I would love to try it as well on ice cream and more! Don't hesitate to purchase your own bottle for the holidays!
I have come up with so many different uses; it's a wonder flavoring. I first tried it in chai tea, as I read that in the other reviews and it did not disappoint. I then put it in porridge, and that was excellent. Cakes, icing, anything, you need a little warm spiciness, it's perfect for that.
