Maple Ginger Pear Sorbet & Maple: 100 Sweet & Savory Recipes Featuring Pure Maple Syrup Giveaway!

Maple Ginger Pear Sorbet -

Today I’m sharing a beautiful recipe for Maple Ginger Pear Sorbet. I wish I could take credit for this deliciousness but this sorbet recipe is the creation of Katie Webster, author of the blog Healthy Seasonal Recipes, contributor to Eating Well, Fitness and Parents magazine. Most recently, Katie can add cookbook author to her range of talents with the release of her cookbook, Maple: 100 Sweet and Savory Recipes Featuring Pure Maple Syrup.

I first met Katie when we were both (along with other amazingly talented food writers) invited to King Arthur Flour for their annual event, Blog & Bake. There we spent three intense, fun filled days of baking, eating and learning together. Katie brought her vivacious personality, vast knowledge and talent along with her that weekend. The best thing about everyone is our group was that we were able to all learn from one another and had a blast doing it so when I had the opportunity to review Katie’s new cookbook, I was all over it.

This maple ginger pear sorbet is lightly sweet with those spectacular maple notes then the spiciness of the ginger makes this recipe unique and extra special. It was so easy to make and very refreshing. Frozen treats need not be reserved for warmer months. The flavors in this sorbet are perfect for autumn. Katie takes maple to a whole new level with all her simple, easy and most importantly, healthy recipes.

This gorgeous full-color cookbook features a wide range of recipes both sweet and savory. From breakfasts, main courses, appetizers, soups sides, desserts and more! With variations to fit any lifestyle from vegan to paleo to gluten-free, there’s something for everyone. Maple offers a whole new way of looking at maple syrup. With dishes like Maple Cashew Chicken Satay, Maple Meyer Lemon Whiskey Sour and Maple Apple Crumb Pie, it’s glaringly apparent that maple isn’t just for pancakes anymore!

Katie is “first and foremost interested in making healthy food taste great and to do so with locally sourced and seasonal ingredients most of the time.” Katie says, “maple syrup is a great substitute for refined sugar because it’s healthier, minimally processed and still holds all of its naturally occurring trace micronutrients and minerals. It has more than 50 antioxidants in it and recent studies show that it has anti-inflammatory properties. Because it tastes sweeter than white sugar, you can use less of it to sweeten recipes, and it is lower on the glycemic index than corn syrup or table sugar, which means it will not cause the same blood sugar spike as there other sweeteners cause.”

Through Katie’s cookbook you can even get tips and tricks through her instruction on how to get started sugaring! I’m a sap rookie but after cooking from this spectacular cookbook, I’m beyond inspired to use pure maple syrup in new, unique ways and perhaps even start tapping some trees of my own! I know you’ll love this beautiful cookbook as much as I have so be sure to pick up a copy.

I love pure Maple Syrup! Katie’s cookbook looks lovey and I’d enjoy learning new ways to enjoy the syrup.

Mmmmm, maple syrup! Aside from the usual breakfast uses, I like to add a little maple syrup to roasted butternut squash. Just a touch helps bring out the sweetness of the squash and adds a lovely, deep flavor.

I like maple syrup drizzled over ice cream!
