  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.

This is the same recipe that my Great Aunt used. Fancy grade Vermont Maple Syrup has the best outcome. Be patient when boiling down the syrup, it is worth the wait. A couple of changes; we use t...

Nice flavor and texture. I used on an apple cake that is made with little sugar so the sweetness of the icing was welcome.

This was delish! I got nothing but compliments on it

This was surprisingly easy to make. It whipped up like magic and had a texture unlike anything I have ever had. Smooth and creamy. The flavour was amazing.
