Earlier this week I wrote about the cronut-burger-associated food poisoning of hundreds of festival-goers in Toronto. New evidence has emerged: The culprit was neither the cronut nor the burger, but the maple bacon jam, produced at the same bakery that made the cronuts. Epic Burger is off the hook, and their bakery partner, La Dolci, is now being investigated to find out how the toxin got in the jam.
Since you can no longer get maple bacon jam at the CNE, try making it at home instead. This recipe from Martha Stewart is excellent (I’ve made it a few times), but please, store it safely.
