A Tasty Recipe for You
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup Sugarmaker’s Cut Pure Maple Syrup
- Pinch of salt
- ¼ cup cornstarch
- 2 large egg yolks
- 3 tbs butter
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream for topping
Put one cup of milk, the cream, maple syrup and pinch of salt in a medium-sized pot. Heat until puffs of steam start to come off the liquid then turn off the heat (about 8 minutes).
In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining cup of milk adding the liquid slowly so the cornstarch doesn’t clump. Whisk in the egg yolks. Take about a cup of the hot milk mixture from the pot and slowly add it to the yolk mixture, whisking constantly.
With whisk at the ready, and the heat on medium-low, slowly pour the yolk mixture into the pot stirring constantly. Continue stirring when it is all combined making sure it is not scorching on the bottom of the pot. When the mixture starts to thicken after several minutes, turn off the heat, add the butter and vanilla and continue stirring until they are absorbed. Set aside to cool. When ready to serve, top with whipped cream and the cookie of your choice.
Runamok Maple produces infused, smoked and barrel-aged maple syrup along with our pure maple, which we call, Sugarmaker’s Cut. We love pure maple syrup but have discovered that the potential for taking it in new directions is limitless. Maple marries exceptionally well with a variety of flavors. Some of them are tried and true like cinnamon and vanilla and some are unexpectedly out of this world, like our original Makrut lime-leaf. And our barrel-aged syrups have taken this North American treasure to a whole other level.
We are constantly working on new recipes to highlight the unique flavors in our syrups, and have gathered them here, on our website, for you to try. We hope you will explore it for ideas as well as information about our operation.
