Maple Cream

Maple Cream is prepared by boiling maple syrup to 22˚ to 24˚F (12˚ to 13˚C) above the boiling point of water (Boiling point of water is 212˚) then rapidly cooling the cooked syrup. For best results, the syrup should be cooled to 75˚ (24˚C) or below before stirring. Be sure the cooling syrup is kept absolutely still before stirring followed by slow stirring. This procedure results in the formation of very small sugar crystals and forms a product with a consistency similar to peanut butter. Maple cream is a delectable topping for toast, muffins, fruit or other similar products and can be used anywhere as a substitute for jam or jelly. For best results, the syrup from which maple cream is prepared should be U.S. grade A amber rich taste. A gallon of maple syrup will produce about 7 ½ pounds, 3.4 kg of maple cream. Delicious, enjoy!

Pan Seared Maple Salmon

Sear the salmon in a pan and when it reaches about 115 degrees turn the heat to low.

Pour in 100% Pure maple syrup (about 3 oz per piece of salmon) and a splash of soy sauce.

Let the sauce reduce for about a minute or until it has thickened enough to coat the fish.

The soy sauce is salty enough so no further seasoning is necessary.

Keep the heat low enough so the maple syrup doesn't caramelize. Enjoy!
