36 portions
Metric Imperial

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup store-bought, unsweetened apple purée
  • 1/2 cup fruit purée* (your choice – apples, pears, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries, etc.), ideally from Québec
  • 1 cup maple syrup (preferably amber syrup for its rich flavour)
  • 2 tbsp powdered pectin
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar

Method

  1. In a medium but deep saucepan, combine the purées, maple syrup, and pectin. Bring to a boil. Stir frequently and allow to boil until the temperature on a candy thermometer reads 110° C (225° F). Be careful! This preparation will get very hot and the thickening liquid will bubble and perhaps splash. Keep a close eye on the heat toward the end of cooking to prevent the mixture from sticking to the bottom and burning.
  2. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice.
  3. Transfer to a 20 cm (8 in) square pan lined with parchment paper. (Use a parchment paper-lined loaf pan to get a thicker spread.) Allow to cool at room temperature for a few hours.
  4. Remove from pan and cut into the shapes (cubes, strips, triangles, etc.) you like. You could also shape with a knife or cookie cutter.
  5. Coat with maple sugar and store in an air-dry container.

* If you use berry purées (i.e. strawberry, raspberry, cranberry, etc), you’ll have to put them through a sieve first.

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.
