A Tasty Recipe for You
(Fennel Hibiscus Chutney)
- Vegetable oil for sautéing
- 1 medium onion, peeled and diced
- 1 fennel bulb, trimmed, cored and diced
- 2 Tbsps. red wine vinegar
- 2 Tbsps. Hibiscus Flower Infused Maple Syrup
- Chopped mint or parsley (optional)
- Cubed lamb (approx 1/3 – 1/2 lb per person)
- 1 sweet red pepper
- Salt and fresh ground pepper
To make the chutney, put 1 – 2 tablespoons of oil in a wide sauté pan, turn the stove on high and add the onion and fennel. Sauté the vegetables, letting them brown and stirring only occasionally. When they have developed a nice brown color add the vinegar and maple syrup. Stir to combine and cook a few minutes more until the liquid has mostly reduced to a glaze. Remove from the heat and let cool. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Thread the lamb cubes onto wooden or metal skewers, alternating occasionally with some red pepper. Drizzle a little of the vegetable oil on the meat and then season with salt and pepper. Heat a grill to medium-high and place the skewers in the middle. Grill until the meat has developed a little bit of char on the outside and is medium on the inside – about 8 minutes per side, depending on the intensity of your heat.
Just before serving, add the herbs to the chutney and serve in a small bowl. These lamb kabobs would be excellent with a side of mixed wild and white rice and some steamed snap peas.
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.
