10 Marvelous Ways to Use Maple Sugar
We all know that maple sugar is delicious when you eat it by the spoonful — not that we’re condoning that, of course. Or saying that we’ve done that. (We absolutely have.)
To help you avoid this “spoonful-of-sugar” dilemma, we’ve compiled a quick list of some ways to use maple sugar this winter!
1. Coffee and tea: maple sugar will totally change your morning caffeine. Try it with a warm cup of Little Amps coffee, some cream, and enjoy a delectable cold morning treat!
2. Oatmeal: add maple sugar to your morning oatmeal to sweeten up your day! Try adding raisins or cranberries for some extra nutrients.
3. Toast: instead of cinnamon sugar, try maple sugar on your toast for a sweet treat that’s delicious at any time of the day or night.
4. Pancakes and waffles: change your weekend brunch game completely with a simple maple sugar glaze — mix maple sugar and a little whole milk to create a sticky glaze that will make your breakfast foods even better.
5. Yogurt: stir a little maple sugar in your mid-afternoon snack for some yummy winter flavor.
6. Bacon: yeah, you read that right. Coat some fresh cooked bacon in maple sugar — trust us, it’ll be good.
Bacon Bonus: use some of the dried cayennes from Everblossom Farm for an extra spicy kick!
7. BBQ: use maple sugar to make an incredible barbecue sauce. We know you’ve always wanted a secret recipe that your friends and family will beg for!
8. Apple crisp: make a normal apple crisp, but try using maple sugar instead of brown sugar for the crumbly topping!
9. Popcorn: mix some maple sugar into your freshly melted butter for an incredible homemade sweet popcorn — pop in a classic holiday movie, and you’re all set!
10. Donuts: for those of you who are a little more adventurous in the kitchen, try making baked donuts using maple sugar instead of normal sugar, and then top them as you please! We recommend maple glaze and (you guessed it), some more bacon.
