How to use leftover maple syrup
- Maple roasted squash
Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cut a large butternut squash into pieces [don’t peel]. Put in a roasting tray with 2 thickly sliced red onions, drizzle over 2 tbsp olive oil and 1 1/2 tbsp maple syrup, then toss to coat. Season well with salt and pepper and nestle in a few rosemary sprigs; roast for 50-60 minutes , tossing every now and then until soft.
- Maple granola
