Original recipe yields 3 cups



  1. Pour maple syrup into a small saucepan. Heat to between 223 and 234 degrees F (106 to 112 degrees C), or until fine threads form when dripped from a spoon. If it reaches the temperature before your egg whites are ready, remove from heat, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whip the egg whites with salt until they can hold a peak. Gradually drizzle in the hot syrup while continuing to whip until thick and fluffy.

My son cannot have sugar, this was the perfect substitute. Great texture, fluffy - almost merringue-like. I put it on a wheat-free, sugar-free birthday cake...it tasted awesome! (and all the party-goers had no idea it had no sugar!)



finally found one that useI s real maple syrup and not artificial flavoring! I added a little vanilla. Tastes like a light maple marshmallow. I microwaved the syrup in a glass measuring cup/has no problems.Don't know why the first poster had to throw out the pan. At worst putting water in it and heating it should have dissolved off any stuck on stuff. As cookie or cake icing I give it a 3 to 4 but I did find a fab use for this stuff...it makes awesome whoopee pie filling!



This was light and tasty. I know that Lila's post was in 2006, but there is no need to throw out a pan that has hardened sugar syrup in it. Put water in the pot, place on the stove, bring to a boil, turn off and cover for 10 to 15 minutes. Empty the hot water carefully into the sink. The sugar should have dissolved and the pot is ready to wash.
