This is a great recipe and it uses maple-flavored syrup, but you can use real maple syrup if you would like. I prefer real maple syrup. Yummy. 1 c Maple-flavored syrup 1/2 c Sugar 2 ts White vinegar 2 ts Baking soda Butter a 9x9" pan; set aside. In heavy 2-quart saucepan combine syrup, sugar, and vinegar. Bring to boiling over medium heat, stirring till sugar dissolves. Continue cooking without stirring to 300~ (hard crack stage). Remove from heat; quickly stir in soda and mix well. Immediately pour into buttered pan; do not spread. Cool; break into pieces. Makes about 1/2 pound candy.
