As for which is sweeter, maple syrup or honey, honey is sweeter because it contains more invert sugar. From here on it's subjective. ① I like the taste ② Add honey to sweets to make them moist and brown (because it contains a lot of invert sugar) ③ Maple syrup if you don't want curry or other starchy sauces to be crunchy (because it doesn't contain enzymes) ④ Maple syrup for children under 1 year old (because there is no Clostridium botulinum) ⑤ Honey for meat tenderization (probably because of its low pH) becomes. As a bit of knowledge, the sugar maple is Canada's representative tree and is depicted on the national flag. (Canada is a maple syrup producing country)
