Maple cream is a delicious spread used as a topping for toast, muffins or other similar products.Don't worry if you can't visit us,
Maple cream is made from pure syrup boiled down 22 to 24 degrees F above the boiling point of water. As soon as the syrup reaches the desired temperature it is removed from the heat and cooled quickly to around 50 degrees F to prevent premature crystallization. It is considered suffieiently cooled when the surface is firm to touch. It is then stirred by hand or machine until it is of the right consistency and shows a tendency to "setup". This is a spread with the consistency of peanut butter but is definitely 'pure maple' flavor. Beckwith Maples has it in 1/2 lb. and 1 lb. jars.
Authenic or pure maple syrup is what we at Beckwith Maples always give our customers. It is as authenic today as it was back in the early years when many have fond memories of a quieter, more relaxed time. When sap was collected from buckets by horse and bobsled in barrels and taken to the saphouse where it was boiled down . Native Americans were the first to discover the fact that sap from maple trees could be processed into syrup. Although there are no authenticated accounts of how this process was discovered there are legends. Undoubtedly these have changed over time, but it is likely this discovery was accidental.
