Our Vermont Maple Candy is handmade in small batches from our family’s sugarhouse kitchen. It is packaged in 1 lb and 1/2 lb boxes for the best price for quantity. The maple candy box is filled with shapes available when order is placed. The Carman Brook Farm Maple Candy does not contain any preservatives.
How Maple Candy is Made
Maple Candy is made by boiling the maple syrup to a high temperature followed by a slow, gradual cooling process in the way that the syrup is stirred. Similar to making fudge, the stirring of the liquid until the shine is gone is what causes the small sugar crystals to form and the syrup to set up in the molds. The only ingredient is maple syrup. Maple Candy is naturally gluten free and does not contain any dairy products.
The Maple Candy Flavor Choices
We offer you a choice not found at any other sugarhouse that we are aware, of the traditional light maple candy or dark maple candy. Traditional light maple candy is made with Golden Delicate Taste Maple Syrup and has a delicate maple flavor. The dark maple candy is made with the Dark Robust Taste Maple Syrup and has a more intense maple flavor. For a variety, try a mixed box of both the light and dark candy.
The Not so Perfect Maple Candy
Occasionally, we have “not so perfect” candy. The shapes didn’t come out quite as nicely as we’d like or the holiday passed.
