My mom always made homemade syrup when I was growing up. And she always boiled it over...pretty much every time. She would get so mad because it made such a sticky mess down in the burner. If you don't boil it over, homemade syrup is so easy, way cheaper, and tastes a whole lot better than that store bought, bottled stuff.
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup water
1/2 tsp. Mapleine
Combine sugars and water in a sauce pan. Stir and bring to a soft boil. As soon as it starts to boil, reduce heat to low and add Mapleine. Serve.
|This is what Mapleine looks like. You buy it in the spice section of the |
grocery store, near where all of the other extracts and flavorings are.
