I was in a shop recently and saw a jar marked "Maple Butter." As many of you can understand, being an unrepentant food dork, I bought it. Never seen it before, never heard of it before. Can't seem to find much mention of it around here. And, honestly, I don't really know what to do with it.
I tried it on some good, toasted bread, but it was pretty sweet to tackle. I added some butter to the other half of the slice and that mitigated the potency some. I'm thinking about making some wings or drumsticks on the barbecue, rubbing them with a ground chile based mix, and finishing them with a good slathering of the new member of my pantry. We'll see . . . .
Here's the stuff (though I I think the price shown is off - I paid maybe twelve - thirteen bucks for it):
So, fellow 'hounds, do you know the stuff? Do you use it? How do you like it?
