The idea for Moose Maple Butter came to me quite by accident over breakfast in New York, a few years ago. I was staring at a slice of hot, buttered, sourdough toast and craving something sweet to slather on it.
Being on a health kick at the time, I was determined to avoid refined sugars and artificial sweeteners, so that meant I couldn’t have any of the jam, marmalade and chocolate spreads on the breakfast table. However, the maple syrup (this was New York after all) caught my eye and checking it was natural and pure, I poured a little on that toast: and the taste just blew me away! (Think pancake toast – truly sweet and buttery and warm and delicious.)
