Maple Delight

Jennie loves a website called food52.com. It has recipes, shopping, articles, contests, and tips and all related to food!  She is constantly sending me recipes and I finally tried one today.  What a sweet, delightful treat this valentine weekend!

Here is a link to the recipe:

But here's what I did:

1-1/4 cup dehydrated cane juice
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup cold water
1 teaspoon baking soda
Coarsely ground sea salt

Set your one teaspoon measuring spoon and baking soda out and handy.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly brush with oil.

Combine water, sugar, and maple syrup in medium saucepan over medium high heat.  Stir just until sugar is dissolved.  Clip your candy thermometer to the side of the pan and boil/cook until the temperature reaches 300.

Quickly whisk in the baking soda until combined.  It gets all puffy and cool!

Scape and pour out onto your baking sheet.  Do not smooth out or spread. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.

Set in cool place to harden.  When completely cool, break apart with your hands.
