Maple Piper Nigrum
1. Once added to your food, let Maple Piper Nigrum rest 10 to 15 minutes before you cook your foods. The maple sugar melts and caramelizes on your foods. Start out with a little to gauge your heat level. It can get hot.
2. Use on salads, as a garnish for soups, sprinkle on meats or vegetables, roll goat cheese or cream cheese in it to encrust it for appetizers. Use to garnish the rim of a glass as an addition to your Bloody Mary.
3. Try it on cedar planked salmon cooked on your grill. It caramelizes and is delicious.
4. Pour over your popcorn at home. It is our version of sweet Kettle Corn, but it is better for you. Maple Sugar is one of the best sugars for you.
5. Use on chicken or pork for a delicious sweet, peppery flavor. Grill or pan sauté it.
6. Gourmet Maple Pepper Bacon: Sprinkle on your bacon, let it rest for about 15 minutes before you bake it, 350 degrees F, on a rack with a pan under it to catch the drippings.
7. Ribs: Pork or beef. Use it as a dry rub. Let rest for 15 minutes or longer. Start by grilling the ribs and finish it off in the oven. You can mix it with Terra Verde Foods Plum Chipotle or Terra Verde Foods M I Sauce as a mopping sauce when put in the oven or as a dipping sauce when served.
8. Salads: I love this on a Spinach/Strawberry salad. Great to use on fruit salads. Sprinkle on an avocado & grapefruit salad or coleslaw.
9. Eggs: Maple Piper Nigrum adds a mysterious sweet/peppery flavor to any style of cooked eggs.
10. Mix it with TVF’s Plum Chipotle. It ups the flavor a notch. I call it my “Texas BBQ” sauce.
11. It is great as a garnish on butternut squash, pumpkin or acorn squash soup or just baked.
12. Slice apples, pears, oranges or grapefruit, put on a plate, sprinkle with MPN, let rest for 10 minutes and microwave for 1 minute. It comes out just like baked fruit. Serve with as a side with any meat or on peanut butter sandwiches.
13. Make a Tomato Preserve by adding a little MPN to our Tomato Basil Garlic Sauce. Mix it with a spoon. This is great on cream cheese & crackers or toast tips. I use it as a topping on meatloaf. Texans use it on Party meatballs or finger sausage as a sauce. Great on sandwiches when fresh tomatoes are not in season! It could be a new favorite on hamburgers.
