Vanilla, Cinnamon & Star Anise

We created this flavour profile to deepen the silky sweetness of maple syrup and give it an exotic twist. Starting with pure vanilla, cinnamon bark and just a touch of star anise, this infusion creates a familiar yet unique taste that will transport you to the spice markets of the Orient. Use it to give a distinct twist to bread puddings, ice cream or your morning oatmeal. Better yet, transform your everyday pancakes, waffles or French toast into something extraordinary.

How To Use

  • Bread puddings, to give them a distinct twist
  • Drizzled over ice cream
  • With pancakes, waffles and French toast
  • On any number of warm breakfast cereals – cream of wheat, oatmeal, kasha
  • As a exotic sweetener for whipping cream
  • Over cheesecake
  • In smoothies and yogurt
  • To replace simple syrups in warm and cold beverages (vanilla steamers, iced coffees, etc.)
