Bring Maple to Your Table

Nov 28, 2016 01:35AM ● Published by Family Features

Some foods just seem to evoke the smell, taste and feel of chilly weather months.

As a beloved fall and winter flavor, maple syrup can be much more than a breakfast condiment or pancake topping - it can be an impressive way to transform simple, seasonal snacks.

A delicious beverage or dessert can be enhanced with the flavor of maple. For example, chef Megan Miller, of Baker Miller in Chicago, recommends the crisp, fresh taste of Homemade Maple Cream Soda as a seasonal beverage that pairs perfectly with the smoky kick of Stacy's(r) Fire Roasted Jalapeno Pita Chips - a pantry staple in her home.

For a sweet treat, chef Joanne Chang, of Flour in Boston, suggests New England Maple Apple Dip. This dip delivers the flavors of the season with maple syrup, fresh apples and cinnamon as another delectable accompaniment to pita chips.

By combining these seasonal ingredients, you can create delicious pairings and mouthwatering desserts for winter. Find more chef selections and featured pairings at stacyssnacks.com.
