Where do you find Granulated Maple Sugar:
Granulated Maple Sugar is the granulated form of pure maple syrup. Find it at sugar houses’ and farms in New England. Otherwise find it on Amazon.
Substitute granulated maple sugar for equal parts in any recipe that calls for granulated sugar. It gives you a touch of maple taste and is a raw sugar.
How to cook Salmon in the oven:
Simply place the maple pecan coating on the top of the salmon filet and bake in the oven. Or you could place this salmon on a cedar board on the grill. That would be perfect for summer dinners!
