250 ml (1 cup) maple syrup
15 ml (1 tbsp.) minced garlic
3 sprigs of fresh thyme
2 onions, chopped
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper to taste

SWEET CHIVE MAYO
250 ml (1 cup) mayonnaise
30 ml (2 tbsp.) yellow mustard
30 ml (2 tbsp.) maple syrup
30 ml (2 tbsp.) chopped fresh chives
Tater tots, bacon, baked beans, sliced bread and fresh fruit
Place the eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil, then cover and cook for 10 minutes over medium heat. Drain, then immediately cool under cold water. Peel the eggs and set aside.
Combine the mayo ingredients in a bowl. Set aside in the refrigerator.
In a large saucepan, combine the broth ingredients. Bring to a boil, then let simmer for 20 to 25 minutes over medium-high heat, until about one-third of the liquid has evaporated. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
If preferred, strain the broth through a sieve.
Pour the required amount of broth into the Fondussimo set. Set the rest of the broth aside.
Arrange the dipping ingredients, sides and dip on serving plates. Bon appétit!
A few tips
Got some broth left after the meal? It will make an excellent braising liquid for ham or chicken.
Most kinds of baked beans will not pass through the perforations of the Fondussimo baskets, so you can soak them in the broth without risking losing them in the bowl!
Boiled eggs in a fondue? You bet! Just like in an Asian-inspired soup, you can heat up your halves or quarters of hard-boiled eggs right in your Fondussimo! Since they are already cooked, it will only take a few seconds.
Did someone say mimosas? Pour 4 ounces (about 100 ml) of sparkling wine into each flute, fill with orange juice, and you’re off to a festive boozy brunch!
