Maple Sugar

I’ve had this tutorial on my YouTube channel for a while but I realize I never took the time to put in on my website. 

This is less of a recipe and more of a chemistry lab. You can make as much sugar as you want, just make sure that your pot is at least three times larger than the amount of syrup you’re going to start with. 

Instructions are simple:

  1. Heat maple syrup in a large pot on the stovetop. I used a non-stick saucepan with a silicone spatula for easy clean up.
  2. Make sure the temp reaches 260°F (125°C) and the pot doesn’t boil over.
  3. As temperature cools, stir constantly (I used a wooden spoon) to avoid clumps.
  4. Sift through a sieve and throw remaining clumps in a food processor to blitz into a fine sugar. 

(I used 2 cups of maple syrup and ended up with a little more than 2 cups of sugar.)
