Our maple cream is made with only one ingredient, maple syrup harvested from our farm's Vermont sugar woods. The only addition is a bit of expertise, temperature manipulation, and stirring. Our master maple cream maker is extremely fussy about unwanted sugar crystals building and tainting the creamy texture our customers have come to know and love.
Our maple cream is packaged in a new, 10 oz. container, that returning customers might appreciate, is much easier to open than our previous 1 lb. and 1/2 lb. tubs. We do have a limited stock of 1 and 1/2 lb. containers that are now on sale until we run out.
Carman Brook Farm Maple Cream does not contain any preservatives. It ships well, however it does require refrigeration upon receipt. It is not uncommon to find a bit of separation, have no fear, mix it back together and it'll be just like you remember.
How Maple Cream is Made
Maple Cream is produced by further boiling maple syrup past its ready point to remove additional water content, cooling it quickly, and whipping the syrup into a delicious creamy spread. Pretty simple, right?
Maple Cream is naturally gluten free and vegan, and does not contain any dairy products. “Cream” simply refers to the creamy texture. We've fielded many questions about this exact topic, this is a one ingredient product.

The Maple Cream Flavor Choices
We offer you the choice of the traditional light maple cream or dark maple cream. Traditional light maple cream is made with Amber Rich Taste Maple Syrup and has a delicate maple flavor. The dark maple cream is made with the Very Dark Strong Taste Maple Syrup and has a more intense maple flavor.

Maple Cream Uses
While consuming maple cream you’ll enjoy the velvety texture, similar to creamy peanut butter. Anything that can be topped with peanut butter, butter, jams or jelly can be spread with maple cream. It is delicious on sugar cookies, donuts, toast, bagels or muffins. On our farm maple cream has also been used to spread between two waffles making a breakfast sandwich for on the run!
