Chef’s tip

  1. Add poached eggs to the salad to make it even more delicious.

A warming, winter salad, bursting with goodness from artichoke and kale. It’s a great way of using up turkey from a Christmas roast, but also works well with chicken at any time of the year.

More about maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

Maple spread doesn't contain any butter or dairy products

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple spread comes from the sap of the maple tree that’s all.
