Homemade Maple Syrup

Homemade Maple Syrup

Because the only kind worth having, is the one made at home......

Homemade Maple Syrup

And because I like knowing that what I make at home is free of preservatives and all the other nasty stuff...

Homemade Maple Syrup

Homemade Maple Syrup

1-3/4 c white sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 c water
1/2 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.

I love that you have posted this recipe. This is the homemade syrup my mother used to make when I was young, and I am so glad I found your blog. Thank you!

I would like to suggest that you rename your recipe though to 'Homemade Maple Flavored Syrup', as I have lived in Maine for the last 21 years, and Homemade Maple Syrup starts with tapping a maple tree in your yard.
