Jewels Under the Kilt won a Premier's Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence in 2015 for their roasted Ontario nuts, produced in a range of intriguing flavours. Now the Fergus company has a new product to market. This year's award honours the company's resourceful thinking. Maple syrup is a featured ingredient in Jewels Under the Kilt's lineup of flavours, and that means lots of crystallized maple syrup left in the roaster once the nuts are done. Owner Elisabeth Burrow is now marketing the tasty, crunchy crystals as a unique Ontario treat, perfect for adding to salads, yogurt or ice cream or using just about anywhere you would use sugar. The sweet idea has boosted revenue, reduced waste and gained the artisanal roaster even more customers.
