Organic Maple Sugar in Israel

We have done it!

We have finally figured out the process for making Organic Maple Sugar.

Maple Sugar is made from Pure Maple Syrup and nothing else. No extra ingredients of any kind. It’s pure.

When baking with maple syrup, you need to make adjustments to the recipe to take into account the added liquid that comes with the syrup. This can be tricky.

The solution is to use maple sugar which is not only dry, but chemically is used at reduced levels: If a recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, you can use 2/3 of a cup of maple sugar and get the same chemical reaction that you need, but with more nutritional bang for your buck and with less calories- the cup of white sugar adds about 773 calories to your recipe while the 2/3 cup of maple sugar adds about 237 calories.

Maple Sugar is a sugar- but it’s the healthiest sugar you can use and the taste is fantastic!

We will have this in our store soon- so stay tuned.

Maple Whiskey for sale!

It took a while but we have MAPLE WHISKEY for sale RIGHT NOW.

We are emphasizing the “right now”” part because there are exactly 120 bottles in existence in the world and David at the Golan Heights Distillery (GHD) has told me that he has already sold most of them.

We suggest you move fast otherwise you’ll have to wait for the next batch.

The Whiskey is based on a two grain wheat and barley Golani whiskey that has had our real grade B maple syrup added to it to give it a bit of sweetness. The maple flavor is subtle but noticeable.

Each bottle is 700 mL and costs 140 nis.

We are working on getting delivery methods sorted out but for now we are going to try to use our pre-existing tremper/post office combination. The trempers are free, the post office is 10 nis. We will have to play it by ear and see how this goes.
