Recipe — Maple and orchard fruits spoom
4 portions
Metric Imperial

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons ice cider
  • 6 mint leaves, chopped

Maple Italian Meringue

  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 4 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 pinch of cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup strawberry sorbet, softened
  • 1 cup sparkling cider

Method

  1. Put 4 large glasses in the freezer.
  2. In a bowl, combine the strawberries, ice cider and mint. Set aside.
  3. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the maple syrup without stirring until a candy thermometer registers 115 °C (240 °F). To keep the caramel from bubbling up and overflowing, put a wooden spoon in the saucepan.
  4. In a bowl, add the egg whites, the cream of tartar and the vanilla, then make the meringue by slowly pouring in the boiling maple syrup while beating with an electric mixer on high speed. Spoon in the strawberry sorbet.
  5. Place the reserved strawberries in each of the frozen glasses, then add the maple and strawberry meringue.
  6. Fill with sparkling cider and serve.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
