Today I’m excited to introduce you to an amazing Canadian company with some seriously fantastic products: Pure Infused Maple Syrup. I’ve had the pleasure of sampling and recipe testing their line of infused maple syrups, let me tell you, it’s been love at first taste.
The flavours: 1) Vanilla, Cinnamon & Star Anise, 2) Maple Gastrique: Ginger & Apple Cider Vinegar, 3) Chipotle & Lemongrass, 4) Lavender & Chai, and 5) Cinnamon, Nutmeg & Cloves
We sat down and sampled the entire line of Pure’s infused maple syrups and we were blown away by each and every one of them. It’s not likely for me to have lavender, star anise, or lemongrass on hand in my kitchen, but Pure’s infusions make it really convenient to add a unique depth and character to go-to meals. I’m already dreaming of Lavender & Chai in hot mugs of tea, Cinnamon, Nutmeg & Cloves on apple and pumpkin everything this Fall, and Vanilla, Cinnamon & Star Anise on oatmeal & coconut yogurt parfaits with fresh summer berries. I had no idea what to expect from the Maple Gastrique (Ginger & Apple Cider) but I was pleasantly surprised by it’s bright, punchy flavour – I can’t wait to experiment with it in some different dipping sauces and salad dressings.
I had high hopes for the Chipotle & Lemongrass infusion long before it arrived on my doorstep. Luckily, I wasn’t let down in the slightest: one taste of the smooth smoky heat of this delicious maple syrup and I was in love. A spicy-sweet chipotle maple glazed burger stacked with toppings, guacamole and a chipotle mayo was the first thing I needed to make.
The maple syrup glaze is the perfect balance of spicy and sweet with a hint of smokiness. This easy vegan patty makes the perfect summer burger paired with a chewy ciabatta bun, crisp fresh veggies, chunky guacamole, and a spicy chipotle-sriracha mayo….
