This week, we're sharing our favorite special diets creations. They might be gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, or sugar-free.
Good morning, everyone! I'm back with Camilla and the gang for another installment of HandCrafted Edibles. Today's theme is SPECIAL DIET. My family doesn't necessarily go out of our way to eat anything that follows a special diet, but we are open to a variety of foods, so we do often have foods that could be eaten by someone who does have a special dietary lifestyle, like gluten free or nut free. The following recipe is Maple Cream and it is gluten free, nut free, and you can also make it dairy free as well. I didn't make it dairy free though.
So what exactly is Maple Cream? Sometimes it is referred to as Maple Butter and is lovely on toast, pancakes, stirred into coffee, etc. You take pure maple syrup and bring it to a boil. Then you cool it down and whip it until it's nice and creamy. Nick says it's tastes just like maple candies, just in spreadable form. He absolutely loves maple anything, so this treat was for him. If you want to make maple candies, you actually just heat it to a little higher temperature and cool and pour it into molds.
I poured ours into a little pint jelly mason jar and it's been gobbled up! I'm not even sure how it made it to the jar in the first place!! :)
