This glaze can be used on everything from poultry to pork to root vegetables. It can also be eaten on pancakes and waffl es and served with biscuits! This is a versatile glaze or sauce, so simple it almost hurts our heads thinking about how little there is to do!
1 cup maple syrup (good quality)
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
2 to 4 fresh sage leaves (optional)
In a small sauce pan over medium low heat, add maple syrup, ginger and sage leaves (if using) and warm through, infusing the flavors together, about 20 minutes. Take off heat, strain and set aside. To use, dip a brush made of sage leaves into glaze and use to glaze poultry, pork or root vegetables.
