It's not every day that a new sugar comes into your life. So when it does happen, it's a pretty special moment. This week in the SAVEUR Test Kitchen we've been playing around with maple sugar, and if you've never tried it — now's your chance. First used by Native Americans to add flavor to all kinds of sweet and savory foods, the golden granules are made from the pure sap of sugar maple trees, which is dried and then crystallized. You can buy it either in a solid block, which must be grated before use, or a fine powder.
