Maple Butter

1 May

In Australia breakfast tradition for me growing up was Weetbix with milk.  In winter to warm our tummies Mum would pre soak the Weetbix with hot water, looking back now, I guess it was because that was easier than heating the milk as it was before the days of microwaves (gosh am I -that- old?)

As I got older and breakfast became more of a grab it an run, the go to was Vegemite and butter.  The catch being the toast has to be buttered hot, so the butter melts, and just a scraping of Vegemite, too much and ugh, too little and it’s just butter.  🙂

A treat, on special occasions would be hot crumpets with butter and honey.  I can still remember Mum asking me one day what was on the front of my shirt and me saying  ‘the crumpet juice’ leaked on my clean shirt.  I must have been about 3 or 4 at the time.

As an adult, I can have hot crumpets with honey and butter whenever I feel like it, which does mean that crumpets have somewhat lost their specialness.   Well I’m pleased to say that I have that specialness back thanks to Maple Butter.

I’m a member of a cooking group called Thermofun, a group I discovered not long after buying a Thermomix.  Leonie, the creator, is responsible for me rediscovering my love of cooking.   Now she is responsible for me falling in love with hot crumpets for breakfast again.  Checkout the recipe here http://thermofun.com/maple-butter/
