Maple-Chile Butternut Soup
Sambal Maple Syrup
In a screw-top jar, combine 1/4 cup pure maple syrup and 1/4 cup Asian chili paste (sambal oelek). (Look for this spicy condiment in the Asian aisle of large supermarkets.) Store in the refrigerator and use to drizzle on soup or roasted vegetables, or as a glaze for meats.
