Recipe and photo by Tal Ronnen for Gardein


  • 1 cup real maple syrup (grade B organic is best in this recipe)
  • 4 tablespoons Earth Balance vegan butter
  • Sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon dark rum


In a small saucepan, combine maple syrup, vegan butter, and sea salt to taste and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until sauce has thickened slightly, about 10 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in rum, stirring carefully, as sauce will bubble up a bit. Let cool for a few minutes then taste and add more salt if necessary.

Cool to room temperature, then transfer to a squeeze bottle.

If not using immediately, the sauce can be rewarmed by putting the bottle in a pan of hot water off the heat.
