Vintage Autumn Celebration: Week 2 - Mapled Apples & Mapleine Corn Candy
|Isn't this vintage bottle of mine so cool?|
The box inside still smells like Mapleine! Wow!
Have you noticed that it's extremely difficult to find maple extract as a flavoring? It's easy to find vanilla extract, even almond and many others, but for some reason maple is a difficult extract to find. Instead you find just plain maple flavoring - no maple in the ingredients. I'm not sure of the reason behind this unless the flavor found in natural maple syrup is difficult to extract. As it talks about in this post at Resurrected Recipes, most artificial flavorings are frowned upon, but America seems to forgive artificial maple syrup without any problem. (Definitely check out that post - it's 1 of 3 that talks about Mapleine and its history!)
Speaking of which, this week's recipes once again come from The Mapleine Cook Book, dated to the 1930s. We've got Mapled Apples which feature an interesting use for bananas and marshmallows, and Mapleine Corn Candy that is not your standard caramel corn recipe! Enjoy!
