My Mouth is Watering…Famille Faucher’s Pure Maple Syrup

I’m not kidding. My mouth is watering. It won’t stop. It’s because of this pure, lovely, liquid gold…


The bringer of the sweet nectar of the Northern Gods? Mariana….an ex-graduate student in my department, who is now a postdoctoral fellow up in Quebec, Canada. She’s been in Reno the past few days as she sits on another graduate student’s committee (one who just defended yesterday) and is a guest speaker today.

I googled the maker and came across this delightful post from Reb Stevenson’s blog. You have to watch the video! šŸ™‚

  1. Yum! Do you have a waffle maker? If you do I can send you a recipe for waffle mix, from scratch (all I ever do.) They’re made with yeast and are crispier than other waffles as a result. You do have to allow some time for the batter to rise, but its worth it. Oh, and the health warning: there’s more butter in them than is recommended, so they’re just an occasional treat.

  2. You’re making my mouth water….drip drip drip, slobber, slobber, slobber. Now I have to get some towels to clean up this mess. šŸ˜‰

  3. Just saw that you want the recipe – will try to hunt it out tonight and email it to you. Also want to share a lesson learned. We had an unusually warm autumn until last week when winter kicked in with a vengeance. I had had the maple syrup in the pantry and ended up with a science experiment in a bottle. Kind of pretty but mostly gross! I read the label after that and saw it said refrigerate after opening. Who knew?

  4. OK – here’s there recipe for Crispy Waffles. You said you like the metric system, right? Well this will test how much you like it.

    100 g butter (melt then allow to cool, but not in the fridge)
    400 ml milk
    2 tsp dried yeast
    300 ml white flour

    Mix yeast and flour in a bowl. Warm the milk to about 37 dec Celcius (that’s body temperature, right, so the Health Dept unapproved method is to stick your finger in to test the temp.)

    Whisk the warm milk into the flour/yeast mixture. There should be no lumps. Allow the mixture to rise for 30 mins at room temperature then stir the melted butter through the mixture.

    Make the waffles according to the instructions that came with your waffle maker. For mine, 75-100 ml of waffle mixture makes 1 waffle.
