We eat a lot of waffles around here. I can do things on repeat forever and ever, but Kev needs variety. Inspired by I am a Food Blog, we flavored our syrup with fruit this weekend. Add chopped berries or stone fruit to a saucepan with a thin layer of water and cook on medium-high heat until bubbly, about 5-10 minutes. Add desired amount of maple syrup and warm through. Serve. For added flavor, drop in a sprig of fresh herbs while cooking.
ooh, the fresh herbs…that’s genius!
I love the idea of adding some fresh herbs. I’ll bet rosemary would be fantastic!
I was kicking myself for not adding rosemary this past weekend. Agreed, I think it would be so nice!
What a great idea! We recently relocated to WA state from New Hampshire. We stocked up on pure NH syrup before leaving. I see some experimenting with syrup in my future! 🙂
I’d looove to see what you make!
YES! Also I love to use a couple of chai or cinnamon tea bags I have floating around the cupboard to infuse for about 5-10 minutes after I heat it up.
Ok, you just made this tip 10,000x better.
What a wonderful idea. Thanks!!
Love this! I use dried cherries too, plump them up in the warm syrup and they are soooo good!
Where do you get your dried cherries? I’m always on the hunt for good ones.
This is such a simple but great idea! My favorite is adding cinnamon and nutmeg to my maple syrup during the fall months. I can’t wait!
Oh, yum. Following in your footsteps come fall.
