Get Creative with Chantal Organics Apple Syrup
Our apple syrup is very concentrated, so a little goes a long way.
Make it Sweet
- Use it as you would honey or maple syrup to drizzle it over fresh fruit and granola, ice cream and yoghurt, pancakes, waffles and corn fritters.
- Use it in baking as an alternative to sugar, honey or maple syrup. Its flavour is intense, so we recommend to start with half sugar and half apple syrup, to ensure the apple flavour is not overpowering. Your favourite granola bar recipe is a good one to start with.
- Create depth to your apple recipes. Add it to apple pies, crumbles, muffins and cakes.
- Whisk it into cream cheese icing to add an apple flavour and a beautiful colour.
- Mix it with icing sugar to glaze cakes and tarts.
- Its natural acidity combined with baking soda provides lift and leavening in baked goods. Perfect for gluten free baking.
Sass up Savoury Dishes
- Brush it on meat for a delicious glaze. It's particularly well paired with pork, chicken, and salmon. Try a glaze made from half syrup, half whole grain mustard for a kick.
- Add a teaspoon to add colour and brightness to gravy.
- Replace the sugar or syrup in home-made BBQ sauce for a unique sweet-tart flavour.
- Instead of a honey glazed ham, make an apple syrup glazed ham.
- Use as a glaze for winter vegetables like carrots, squash and parsnips
- Add to any basic vinaigrette for a sweet-tart flavour.
Naturally sweeten your Drink
- Make a refreshing spritzer. Add 1-2 tablespoons of syrup to a glass with ice and sparkling water.
- Sweeten your cocktail naturally. Simply replace the sugar syrup in the recipe with apple syrup. This also makes for a festive holiday cocktail.
- Warm up with a hot cider. Stir 1-3 tablespoons into boiling water (add a little rum or brandy to make a hot toddy!).
- Stir into your favourite hot tea to sweeten and brighten the flavour.
