Ideas for using Maple Fleur de Sel?


I recently purchased a can of "Maple Fleur de Sel" (which is fleur de sel flakes mixed with pure maple sugar) on a trip to Quebec. It looks delicious but I am stumped as to what to use it for! Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

  1. Wow! That sounds really amazing....
    I would try it first on a thick slice of toast with unsalted butter and the salt to see how strong the flavor is.
    -A grilled cheese (using mild flavored cheese) with slices of apple and the salt
    - ontop of roasted peaches
    - sprinkled on oatmeal
    - on strawberries with basalmic and vanilla ice cream

    I would suggest to only use it as a "finishing salt" after cooking, the flavor may dissipate or change when cooked

    1. Sprinkling on cold foie gras sounds great.

        1. A sprinkle on grilled peaches.
