Ingredients

  • 1 Pound Brussels sprouts, outer leaves removed and ends trimmed
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch of cayenne, or to taste
  • 2 Teaspoons orange zest
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoons Grade A maple syrup

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add the Brussels sprouts and cook, covered, until slightly underdone, about 5-7 minutes depending on the size of the sprouts. Drain and shock in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. 

In a large pan over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the Brussels sprouts, nutmeg, cayenne, orange zest, and salt and pepper, to taste. Stir to incorporate. Add the maple syrup and stir to coat all the Brussels sprouts evenly. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
