Ideas for using Maple Fleur de Sel?

kmanihot Aug 18, 2013 05:11 PM


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!

      A sprinkle on grilled peaches.

        French toast

          Sprinkling on cold foie gras sounds great.

            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
