Vermont Maple Sugar
While Maple Sugar shines in baking applications, we also like to use it in rubs, barbecue sauces and marinades. Ideal for making frosting and sprinkling on buttered toast, cakes, cereals, cookies, oatmeal, pancakes, waffles and yogurt. We’ve also used it to make the crust of a cheesecake and maple shortbread. We’ve also come across a recipe that adds it to butter to make a maple butter that we can’t wait to try. Use as a substitute in any recipe that calls for sugar.
Maple sugar is about twice as sweet as cane sugar, with a subtle but distinct woodsy flavor.
