Class Info

Love maple syrup? You can use it to make granulated maple sugar. Maple sugar is a delicious addition to your morning tea, toast or porridge but it is often hard to find. In this class we will make our own pure sugar from freshly tapped and boiled syrup from my family's farm.

We'll utilize a variety of tools including glucose monitors and window screens to make perfectly textured sugar. You'll leave with a 2.5 ounce recycled jar of your own maple sugar and recipes to make and use more at home.

      I had a great time in this class. It ended up being more of a demonstration class than a hands on experience, but I definitely got a sense of how to make my own mustard and I got to take home 3 different kinds.

Fortunately the hands-on experience of cutting our chicken - held his interest and mine too! We will be buying whole chickens and using our new-found skill! The bonus of this class was the chicken that Breanne and Ariel prepared - so yummy - recipes and methods that we will use over and over. \r\nThe other bonus of the class was the camaraderie that was shared with other class participants and the instructors. What a fun experience!\r\nThank you!","teacher_response":null}
