Maple Syrup Christmas Office Gift Bottles
Oprah's Collection Maple Syrup Gift Box - Christmas Gifts for your Office
A Tasty Recipe for You
- 1 large Italian eggplant
- 1 Tbsp olive oil, plus more for greasing a pan
- 1 medium onion, peeled and diced
- 2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped
- 1 Tbsp Runamok Cardamom Infused or Pecan Wood Smoked Maple Syrup
- Squirt of fresh lemon juice
- Salt and pepper
- 2 Tbsp chopped tomato
- 1 Tbsp chopped parsley or cilantro
- Pita chips for dipping
Preheat oven to 350. Cut the eggplant in half and lay cut side down on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in the oven for half an hour or until the eggplant is very soft. Remove from the oven to let cool.
In a sauté pan, add the onion and cook over medium heat until just beginning to brown. Add the garlic and cook 2 minutes more. With your fingers, pull the skin off of the eggplant and add the rest to the pan. Let the eggplant cook and break down further. At this point you can puree the mixture to make it smooth or let it be chunky.
Remove from the heat and add the maple syrup, squirt of lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. When cool, put in a small bowl, top with tomatoes and herbs and serve with pita chips.
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.
