Pecan and blood orange spread

 

Recently I have been given the privilege to try a new salt caramel syrup from the French Connection. I have lived in Montreal for over 8 years, and have been so fortunate to get acquainted with the North Eastern part of Canada, the French culture, and maple syrup! I have been to numerous sugar shacks, and have even tried sugar pie! Boy, do I love sugar pie!

Salt Caramel Syrup from the French Connection brought back so many memories! The sweet winter desserts, hot and then solidified candy, and even the first syrup I have ever tried on homemade pancakes came to my memories. In my opinion, salt caramel syrup that I have tried is an elevated, much more sophisticated version of regular syrup, and can help you improve any dish, and add that pizzazz!

After I have tried the syrup and was blown away, I started thinking about featuring the syrup on my blog, and what I can make to let the syrup shine. I thought about making pancakes and pouring syrup on top, and then figured that would be too simple! So, I kept the syrup in mind, and started looking for an appropriate recipe. I have found a dip recipe that I have decided to try out, and it turned out amazing! I have tweaked the recipe a bit, and here is what I did:

You Will Not Believe What I Made out of Salt Caramel Syrup

This is a wonderful spread to use on bread for a quick snack or breakfast

Ingredients
  • 1 cup pecans
  • ⅛ cup salt caramel syrup
  • juice squeezed from 3 blood oranges
  • 1.5 tbsp of olive oil
  • a bit of sage

Instructions
  1. Soak your pecans for a day, and then drain the water.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender, and modify as needed to achieve the balance you enjoy.

In my version, the spread turned out quite chunky, but you can modify the texture to your liking. While I love this great famous chocolate paste, and could eat it every day, I still find that making something at home by myself, knowing exact ingredients that I put in a dish, the amount of sugar and fat content, and the ability to change and modify the recipe to my liking is always a winner! Hope you can enjoy this unusual recipe with salt caramel syrup by the French Connection – it is so simple, and so worth it!
