Sunday I felt inspired to make homemade syrup. I love flavored syrup, but I don’t love the price they charge. I also don’t want to buy a big jug of it just to taste the different flavors. I didn’t know you could make your own unless you had a tree to suck the maple out of, but a little research and here we are. It makes the right amount and it’s quick and easy to make. I can’t wait to try out other flavors. We ate it on some chocolate hazelnut pancakes from a mix I stocked up on when it was on clearance after Christmas. Yummy!
Makes 1 cup.
1/2 cup of water
1/4 tsp of maple flavoring (any flavor may be substituted)
Stir ingredients together. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, and cool. Pour into serving container.
