Maple cream is whipped softly in a machine till it becomes a delicious creamy spread. During the stirring process, the syrup takes on many changes until it becomes a smooth, creamy spread. The creamy spread is delicious on sugar cookies, donuts, toast, bagels or muffins. There are a lot of recipes that use maple cream as an ingredient like Maple Whoopie Pies.
Maple sugar is boiled to reduce all the water and stirred rapidly to form sugar crystals. Maple sugar can be sprinkled on oatmeal or yogurt and used in recipes in place of granulated sugar or top off muffins and sweet breads before baking. Sweeten up a buttered toast with a sprinkle of maple sugar.
