Maple Pie for dessert? Heck Ya! Smother it in whipped cream and you’ll be in heaven too.
A great way to end a major meal, maple pie is quick to make (and quicker to eat!) and while this version of the recipe uses dairy products you can substitute them easily enough and make it pareve- perfect for the Vegans in your life.
Most people use the sweeter grade “A” maple syrup to make this with but we have had success using the stronger tasting grade “B” maple syrup so use whichever one you want and be sure to let us know how it turns out?
Shabbat meals tend to dry out after spending extended periods of time on the hot plate so making an awesome sauce that won’t dry out too quickly is very necessary in our house, especially when having guests over. Here’s
Chava’s Maple Roasted Chicken Sauce Recipe:
Serves 6-8. Total cooking time needed: 2 hours 10 minutes
**When Chava makes this dish for Shabbat, she makes the rice separately but in the same fry pan that the chicken was browned in. After it has cooked she adds it over the whole chicken pan to keep the chicken from drying out.
In Canada, the pancake snobs eat their pancakes or waffles hot off the grill- they get eaten as they are made ready. The maple syrup is ideally served heated to make it thinner and to bring out the flavor better.
Nana’s pancakes have been a regular meal for us for many years- at both breakfast and in the evening when we are having a “breakfast-for-diner” night.
With 5 kids and 2 hungry adults, we usually double the recipe to give us enough for the meal, and to leave some extra flapjacks to pop into the kids lunches the next day.
Tamar’s next great recipe was a cabbage side dish that can be made to cover a lot of ground: It’s Pareve, Gluten Free, Organic, and can be made kosher for Passover (depending on the oil you use- Canola Oil is usually considered kitniyot but can be swapped out for another oil to meet your specific Pesach requirements as needed).
Tamar Dunbar is in the process of starting up a business making home-made, all organic jams, jellies and preserves in Israel. She also spends a lot of quality time growing her own working materials and catering for special events. Her family joined us at our Pesach Seder this year and we had a blast!
She has kindly agreed to share some of her favorite maple syrup related recipes with us, and we’re sharing them with you 🙂
I grow my own “rainbow” carrots, but you can find them at some farmers’ markets and at health food (organic/natural/whole food) stores. They’re a really fun way to get kids to eat their veggies, and vary in taste. Best served immediately so the colors won’t “run.”
This recipe is Gluten Free
