Maple cream and maple candy, with a little patience, can be reinvented while maintaining a pure and natural maple product, using only real Vermont maple syrup. At the Carman Brook Farm, we are always looking for fresh takes on traditional maple recipes. Realizing that with maple syrup our customer's tastes varied across the grade spectrum, it sparked an idea. What if we broke norms and produced maple sugar candy and our cream spread with our other high quality grades?
Maple Candy and Maple Cream are traditionally made with the lightest flavored and colored maple syrup. The Golden Delicate Taste is the grade sugar makers have been using for years to produce these maple confections. For the maple syrup to set up to the correct consistency after the proper cooking and cooling procedures, it must have the right amount of natural invert sugar. The optimum levels of invert sugar are consistently found in the lighter grade of syrup.
Using the natural invert sugar that was found in our maple syrup we attempted to make a darker candy. After some research and development, we finally made a very consistent, up to our standards of taste, Dark Robust Taste Maple Candy. The new candies have a much more full bodied maple flavor and the color contrast,that when combined with light candy, is stunning.
You can order these candies from our online store in light, mixed, and dark candy in a 1/2 lb or a 1 lb box. For special occasions and holidays you can order select shapes to fit in with the party theme.
After our success with producing the dark candy, a light bulb turned on... why not make maple cream with dark syrup. We made the first batch and it was divine, I mean it was absolutely delicious. Just like the maple candy, maple cream is available in light and dark grades in both the half pound and pound containers from the maple products category of our online store.
