FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Organic Maple Extract 4 oz by OliveNation Making Maple Glazed Donuts

This is not my donut but mine
looked like this,  frankly I ate all of
mine before it occurred to me to take
a photo.  Photo is from

Finally got around to using this.  I live in an area that is not prone to maple flavored anything and I am particularly fond of maple glazed donuts.   The recipe is 1/2 cup of maple syrup, 1 cup of powdered sugar and 1/4 cup of butter.  I did this the first time and was not thrilled with how "maply" the result was.  Melt the butter in the syrup on a low heat and then whisk in the powered sugar and extract.  Let the resultant mixture set and then dip your donuts.  Let them set and dip them again.  The second time I did the same and added a 1/2 teaspoon of this maple extract.  Viola! Delicious and very maple centric.  I used plain sour cream donuts and got accolades from grandkids and wife.  

About the Product
  • OliveNation pure maple extract is made by distilling the pure maple essence, aroma and flavor into a concentrated form, which is then dissolved in an alcohol base.
  • This gives you a more concentrated maple flavor than using maple syrup.
  • Maple Extract is especially delicious in desserts like Bourbon Pecan Pie, sugar cookies, and in homemade maple ice cream.
  • You can also use it to add flavor to oatmeal, baked beans, Butternut Squash Wedges with Maple Butter, as well as in candy, beverages or anywhere you want to add a hint of maple flavor.
  • Try using maple extract instead of vanilla extract to enhance your favorite recipes with a rich maple flavor and aroma.

If reviewing a product, it may have been received free of charge. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
