Maple Pearls are pebble-sized nuggets of crystallized maple syrup with a unique slow-melting, crunchy texture and robust sweetness that's richer in flavor than store-bought maple sugar. You can crush them up to make maple sugar, or used whole in baked goods, they behave much like chocolate chips: The outsides melt and caramelize slightly but don't completely disintegrate, contributing bursts of rich maple sweetness as you eat. Crown Maple uses state-of-the-art technology to extract richly flavored, organic maple syrup from Hudson Valley's Madava Farms, the largest maple syrup production site in North America. The family company is a trusted brand among chefs for its rich flavor and craft quality.
Fold Maple Pearls into Buttermilk Biscuits
or scones for a maple-flavored twist on the classics, or add to cookie recipes such as our rich Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies
; they're also easy to crush or grind into granulated maple sugar for any recipe. At breakfast, we like to sprinkle Maple Pearls over oatmeal in place of maple syrup for added texture, especially with buttery and nutty flavors—try them with Browned Butter Apple Oatmeal
. Or add to crunchy salads for a sweet accent; the maple flavor complements the crunchy candied pecans perfectly in our Apple and Fennel Salad with Candied Pecans
