Homemade Pancake Syrup
September 04, 2008

I've been thinking I should try homemade syrup because it just doesn't seem right that a product made with sugar and water should contain so many mysterious ingredients and preservatives. I had no choice this morning because I started pancakes before I realized there was just a little bit left in the bottle. I found this recipe to be a GREAT subsitute. It was the same as the store bought stuff in color and texture. I didn't have any maple flavoring but no one in my family knew the difference. It might even be worth puchasing maple flavoring just for this recipe. I haven't done the math but a couple of batches of this probably costs pennies, verses 2 dollars and up for a name brand syrup with very little difference in quality. Plus, there's the benefit of one less processed-food that goes into my kids. This will be made over and over and over in my house.
