Did you know Maple Syrup can be used in place of white sugar in most recipes? Maple's unique flavor is a great way to infuse sweetness into a favorite recipe. Better still, with over 50 antioxidants and naturally occurring essential minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and manganese, using maple is a healthier way to sweeten your food and beverages!
To begin using Maple Syrup in place of the usual white sugar, it’s helpful to keep a few pointers in mind. If using maple syrup, for each cup of sugar a recipe calls for, use ¾ cup of maple syrup and reduce the other liquids by ¼ cup. Using granulated maple sugar is even easier as that can be substituted 1:1 in any recipe.
