Granulated maple sugar starts as pure maple sap. It is then boiled on a wood fired evaporator to create maple syrup, and then the evaporation continues until all water is gone. The sugar is then mixed to release any residual moisture and sifted to create uniform granules. Maple sugar can be substituted 1:1 for cane sugar in any recipe. It’s also delicious sprinkled on toast or stirred into hot drinks. Maple sugar is a superior sweetener in that it contains many nutrients not found in cane sugar or corn syrup.
