My most recent Vermont Public Radio commentary aired today on a topic of critical importance: Faux Food
By coincidence it aired the same day that I had a dinner with pancakes sporting non-maple sauces (the relevance will make sense if you listen to the commentary) – sauces I can only give by name, not recipe, since I made them up as I went along:
- Blackberry Mint Julep (with cream)
- Butterscotch Pineapple
- Lemon Whipped Cream
- Fresh Blueberries
- Vanilla Ice Cream
In this experiment I learned that yes, you can mix random stuff in your house together until you have an interesting and tasty sauce that at no point requires fake maple syrup. I would have had more if I went savory. Just saying that I not only made a rhetorical point, I tested it too. And it was delicious.
