6 New Ways to Use Syrup
Pancakes are just the beginning―syrup is a sweet addition to a variety of dishes (savory, too). Try using it in these ways.
As a glaze: Brush on fish, chicken, or pork before baking.
On bruschetta: Spread toasted bread rounds with blue cheese, then drizzle with syrup.
In butter: Blend 1 tablespoon syrup with 1 stick softened butter. Use on baked carrots, muffins, and toast.
In a shake: Blend 1 cup vanilla ice cream with 1/4 cup milk and 2 tablespoons syrup.
Over polenta: Drizzle with syrup just before serving.
On carrots: Toss 1 pound carrot sticks with 2 tablespoons syrup, 2 teaspoons olive oil, 1/3 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Roast at 400º F for 15 minutes.
