Tropical Traditions Organic Brown Rice Syrup Review And ~~Giveaway~~

Tropical Traditions Certified Organic Brown Rice Syrup is a natural sweetener produced by steeping whole brown rice with a special enzyme preparation derived from “koji.” This process transforms the steamed grain into a smooth flavored, pleasantly sweet syrup. It is made without the use of any cane or beet sugars (no cane juice crystals), corn syrups, or other refined sweeteners of any kind. Organic Brown Rice Syrup is an excellent sweetener for all baked goods, in the preparation of sauces or marinades, and for general cooking purposes.

Gluten Free

Certified Organic

Ideal sweetener for hypoallergenic diets

Easy to digest

Great source of sustainable energy

Non-distinct flavor

Complements a wide variety of foods

I had never even heard of Organic Brown Rice Syrup until I started working with Tropical Traditions. 

I had no idea what to expect when I received it!!  What does Rice Syrup taste like??

To me, it tastes like a mild maple syrup.  It is sweet, but not overly so. 

We used it a variety of ways, including in my tea and coffee and in this great recipe below!!

We really liked it a lot!!

The kids especially!!!

Choose hard apples such as Granny Smith, pippins, Delicious, Rome Beauty, Cortland, or Gala.

To prepare the apples for baking, peel the top third of each one, then core. Cut a bit off the bottom so the apple will stand up straight and secure. This makes a nice presentation.

4 large ripe apples

2 tablespoons soft butter

2 tablespoons Organic Brown Rice Syrup

1/4 cup raisins, dates, or other dried fruits

1/4 cup walnut or pecan pieces

Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, to taste

1 cup apple cider
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cream the butter and sugar, then add the raisins and nuts.

Add the spices you like to taste.

Set the apples upright in a baking dish and fill with the raisin-nut mixture.

Pour the cider around the base of the apples.

Cover with a lid or foil and bake about 30 minutes or until the apples are tender, basting the apples 2 to 3 times during baking.

Serve warm with the syrup, whipped cream, ice cream, chopped nuts, granola, a drizzle or sprinkle of sweetener, a little brandy, or whatever else you can think of!

If you would like to give the Brown Rice Syrup a try, I am giving away a 16oz jar thanks to Tropical Traditions!!
