JUNIOR STRIDERS RECIPE CORNER



CREPES

With Josh Pelletier



My Great Memere Bosse showed my dad how to make crepes at a young age and my dad has done the same with me.  The recipe, while simple, comes from Memere Bosse's cookbook that all her grandchildren were given years ago.   

 

It's what is not in the cookbook that are the family secrets to making them and I will share that with you!  

 

First ignore the sugar amount...Memere always believed it should be a "fist full of love"  and to this day that is what all of us do.  Secondly, it's all about the heat of the pan you use to make them. It needs to be slightly higher than medium but not too hot to burn them.  Lastly,  in true french canadian tradition they are served with homemade maple syrup from any fine local sugar shack and nothing else.  I will man the stove once again when we have a hosted run so you can try some for yourself.” - Josh
