We picked up a bag of maple sugar on a recent trip (we should say "pilgrimage") to the King Arthur Baker's Store in Norwich, Vermont.
It was a passing whim. We'd never used maple sugar before. We didn't have any plans for it or even know exactly how to cook with it.
Our little bag of golden sugar even sat in the cupboard for several weeks before we stumbled upon it en route to something else and idly wondered if it might be good on yogurt. As you might imagine, the result was pretty darn delicious!
Since then, a scoop or two of maple sugar has found its way into many of our dishes, both sweet and savory. For some of our favorite uses and sources on buying some of your own, read on! More
