In Preparation for Thanksgiving November 19, 2011Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.
So we did our annual Thanksgiving grocery run today.
Two of the dishes I’m making for this year are Butternut Marscarpone Gnocchi from Foodwishes. The other is a Maple Custard dessert.
The latter requires, or at least calls for Grade B Maple Syrup. Tried Wally World, nope, Trader Joe’s, nope. So on a lark I thought, lets hit Whole Foods.
A quart of Grade B Maple Syrup is $17.99 but let me tell you, it’s WELL worth it.
What we all know as Maple Syrup is mostly Grade A. It’s less viscous and more mild than Grade B.
But Grade B – if you’ve ever had maple sugar candy, you know what Grade B tastes like. Good stuff! I cannot wait to make those custards.
