Maple Cream


2 cups pure Grade A golden maple syrup

Butter or cooking oil


Place maple syrup into stainless steel pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat; no need to stir.

Continue boiling until a candy thermometer registers 235 degrees (soft ball stage). This may take 6 to 10 minutes or longer. As the syrup approaches the correct temperature, it will typically begin to foam. If this occurs, add just a few drops or oil or butter to bring the foaming syrup back to a liquid.

Once the syrup has reached temperature, cool the pot of syrup in an ice water bath until it has cooled to about 100 degrees.

Either with an electric mixer or by hand with a whisk or wooden spoon, stir until the syrup becomes thick and creamy (much like the consistency of peanut butter).

Place in a mason jar and store in the refrigerator. If separation occurs, stir before using.
