Granulated Maple Sugar is the most versatile product that is made from maple syrup. Because it has no available water, this product is totally shelf stable, it will not separate or mold. As long as the container is kept tightly closed it will last at room temperature indefinitely and will not change its consistency. It can be substituted on a 1 for 1 basis to replace white or brown sugar in any recipe. Try granulated maple sugar on a squash, a sweet potato, on a ham, on your cereal, or on cottage cheese. Use it to make a great sugar cookie, or mix it with cream cheese to make a dip. Try it on different things, use your imagination you will find something new that tastes good with a hint of maple flavor added!
