Maple Sugar

Ingredients

  • 1 pint Maple Syrup
  • Candy Thermometer
  • Medium Heavy Sauce Pot
  • Countertop Mixer

Recipe:

Over medium heat, simmer the maple syrup until it reaches softball stage (260F).  Remove from heat and immediately carefully pour into your countertop mix on low speed.  Mix until the syrup cools and crystalizes. Store in a sealed container at room temperature until needed.

Great sugar substitute in your coffee, over oatmeal, or mixed into pancakes. Or anywhere you would use cane sugar.

Meet The Chef

At nine years old, Ben Gaffney asked if he could work alongside his father, a chef, at Congress Rotisserie in New Haven. The elder Gaffney put the boy to work washing dishes for two years, in the hope that it would discourage his interest in the restaurant business.

But a calling is a calling. Ben Gaffney has spent his life since then pursuing the wonders of food, bringing Middlefield along for the ride as chef at Lyman Orchards since 2017.
