Some foods just seem to evoke the smell, taste, and feel of chilly weather.
A delicious beverage or dessert can be enhanced with the flavor of maple. For example, chef Megan Miller, of Baker Miller in Chicago, recommends the crisp, fresh taste of Homemade Maple Cream Soda as a beverage that pairs perfectly with the smoky kick of Stacy’s® Fire Roasted Jalapeno Pita Chips.
For a sweet treat, chef Joanne Chang, of Flour in Boston, suggests New England Maple Apple Dip. This dip delivers the flavors of the season with maple syrup, fresh apples, and cinnamon as another delectable accompaniment to pita chips.
By combining these seasonal ingredients, you can create delicious pairings and mouthwatering desserts. Find more chef selections and featured pairings at www.stacyssnacks.com.
