Sweet Beaver™ - Maple Streaky
A streaking maple - we live in hope.
Nothing better than Sweet Beaver Streaky - well not much - dry sweet cured with real Canadian Maple syrup, molasses and subtly cold smmm..oaked. This cracker combines sophisticated & subtle sweetness with a wonderful, slight saltiness with a meltingly creamy fat giving a well balanced fantastic taste. A firm favourite with most folks.. inevitably.
Cooking: Done in 60 seconds flat - high heat, frying pan, no oil, 30 seconds side one and 30 seconds side two is how we like it. Put on the extractor fan! Doesn't take long, seriously this is a different beast than you may be used to - treat as you would a loved one.
Pairing: Ace breakfast bacon, or when you need a pick me up after a night out. Flip it in a pancake with maple syrup and fresh lemon, or bang it in a roll. For supper maybe layer it over chicken breast and bake. Try caramelisingg it and making a pudding with it - see Carmalised Bacon Honey Yoghurt
History: Highlands entering Canada from Cumberlands' clearances probably took loads of Sweet Beaver across the plains with them. Perfect for camping or to that holiday chalet with your bestmate - pre, mid and post 6 Nations rugby match. It may well have been named after Flora MacDonald who may have invented it.
