Maple Sugar

Scoutmaster | Aug 4, 2013 10:20 AM

A friend gave me some maple sugar ~ a by-product from his maple syrup making. I think it's from the crystals that form in the process and then he pulverized it. It's vacuum sealed tight, so I'm not sure exactly the texture, but I think it's ultra fine, almost like powdered sugar. It's only about 12 ounces, but I'm wondering if it would lend something special to... something special ??? I don't want to waste it (or other ingredients) on an "experiment". I was thinking maybe in beer making??? Or maybe just sticking it in a jar with a sliced vanilla bean to make Chantilly cream during the holidays. Does anyone have experience with it or any other ideas?
