Default Maple Fondue!

Was visiting my home province of New Brunswick, Canada recently and stopped by St. Quentin, the "Maple Capital of Atlantic Canada".

A feature of the town is this towering maple leaf structure:



Well I stopped at a local grocery store and found a section featuring maple confections. There were bottles of maple syrup, sugar, jelly, etc, but also of fondue! (I never heard of it).



The ingredients (in French) are maple syrup, flour, margarine and cream.

They were selling this container (250 g) for almost $6:00.

Well if you ever made maple cream, this is less thick (more like a milk shake) and it is DELICIOUS. The cashier said you dip fruit in it, just like chocolate fondue (but oh, what a difference! and I think not too hard to make).

I did a search online and saw that maple fondue is well-known in Quebec also. Not sure how widespread it is though.

Anyhow, thought I'd pass it on and add this recipe.

If you've never tried it before, enjoy!

Well,

My wife and I divided the contents of the container into four small desert cups and split it with our two daughters. There was a whole lot of lip smacking going on and yet no dipping. We didn't even use fruit we just spooned it out and enjoyed it as is
