Because the only kind worth having, is the one made at home......
And because I like knowing that what I make at home is free of preservatives and all the other nasty stuff...
Homemade Maple Syrup
1-3/4 c white sugar1/4 c brown sugar
1 c water1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. maple extract
Mix the white and brown sugar with the water, bring to a boil.
Cover and cook for about a minute.
Add the vanilla and maple, mix well and let cool.
This syrup does not need refrigeration. I just use a cute little glass bottle for mine.
