Salted Maple Sauce

Salted maple seems to be the craze….in chocolates, ice cream, baked apples, pots de creme and martinis…oh yeah! Get this ready up to a week before serving.


  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup maple sugar
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • pinch of coarse kosher salt
  • 5-7 drops of imitation maple extract

In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and then add the sugar. Whisk until the sugar completely melts and the liquid becomes thick and boiling, which should take 2-3 minutes.

CAREFULLY, add the whipping cream, whisking as you do so.

Boil this until it becomes thick enough to coat a spoon and has reduced down to 1 cup, whisking often.

Remove from the heat and whisk in the salt and flavouring. Cool down. Cover and refrigerate. Will keep for a week. If you taste it first, it won’t last an hour….
