  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups pure NAPSI-certified maple water
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 cup arborio rice
  • 1 (8 oz) container button mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 cup white wine

  • 2 confit duck legs, shredded
  • 1/4 cup parmesan, grated
  • 2 tbsp maple flakes


  1. In a saucepan, heat the chicken broth with the maple water. Keep warm.
  2. In another saucepan over medium heat, sauté the shallot in the butter. Add the rice and mushrooms and cook for 1 minute, stirring to coat them in butter. Deglaze with the white wine and add the squash cubes. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, until the wine has evaporated.
  3. Ladle in the maple-chicken broth, 125 ml (1/2 cup) at a time, stirring until the broth is completely absorbed before adding the next ladle.
  4. Repeat until all the broth is added, about 20 – 25 minutes.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
