Over the years we’ve tried several things to increase the shelf life of our maple candy. The largest improvement came in 2020 with a new recipe and candy machine, utilizing vacuum cooling and temperature controlled pouring to reduce crystal grain size, making an incredibly smooth candy that resist drying out. This winter we bought a new vacuum sealer to further prolong shelf life. The suction also provides the additional benefit of keeping the candy in place during shipment, resulting in less broken pieces. We have a retractable nozzle style sealer that is compatible with a wide variety of bags material/size/textures, allowing us to lower costs compared to typical FoodSaver bags or the Mylar bags we’ve used in the past.
