Maple Sugar is a very versatile product, traditionally used in brines when making Hams or Bacon. You can also use it in brines for fish and poultry, particularly good with duck or other wild game.
Another bonus with maple sugar is its use in the kitchen when baking, you can substitute maple sugar for your normal white sugar and add a lovely maple flavour to your cakes and pastries. Imagine maple sugar toffees or a maple flavour added to your custard or whipped cream.
Great when added to seasonings for marinades and rib rubs as it gives the finished product a wonderful sweetness and glaze. Even great on fish like Salmon.
This is a maple flavoured sugar as used commercially here in Australia by many butchers and food processing companies. Pure maple sugar is not readily available here and when it is, it comes at a very high cost so this sugar comes as a very effective alternative.
