How to make maple candy?
Using only a few gallons of maple syrup at a time, we produce sugar candy from the maple trees. After the syrup is boiled to 35 degrees above the boiling point of water, it rests a bit and is poured slowly into our candy making machine. An auger stirs the syrup and as it flows from the machine, we catch the maple sugar in molds that set up much like fudge.
Our Vermont maple syrup candy is available in two flavors. The traditional, light candy is made with a light grade of syrup with a sweet maple taste. Or, the dark robust maple candy with a caramelized maple finish. If you cannot decide which flavor, we would suggest you get a mixed maple sugar candy box and decide for yourself.
How long does maple candy last?
Maple candy is never better than the day it is made. We make our maple candy weekly and rotate it off the rack every other week. Over time sugar candy will start to dry out. You can keep it in the fridge or the freezer to preserve freshness. A good general rule to follow is to get what you will consume as candy in a month’s time and use up any leftovers in a bowl of oatmeal or in a hot beverage.
How does temperature affect maple syrup candy?
Humidity is the biggest factor in how temperature will affect maple sugar candy. If the conditions are too humid, the candy may start to reabsorb water from the air. This causes the candy to start weeping and stick together. The good news is that it will not affect the flavor.
