Recipe Notes

If you want to keep this vegan, you can use all maple syrup instead of a mixture of maple syrup and honey. Also, I like to use 1/4 cup apple juice for this sauce, but if apple juice isn't something you normally have on hand, you can use water instead and this sauce will still be totally delicious.
