Homemade Maple Syrup


Got this recipe from a friend.* Tried it. Loved it. We’ve “upped” our number of breakfast for dinner nights since I started making this… breakfast is awesome!



2 cups white sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/8 cup honey

1 cup water

1/2 teaspoon maple extract

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions and Notes:

In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients except for the extracts. Bring the syrup to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer 10-20 minutes until syrup thickens. Remove from heat and stir in the extracts. The syrup will thicken more as it sits and cools. It’s really, really thick when pulling it out of the refrigerator before the second use!

*I think the recipe may just be a scaled-down version of the maple syrup recipe on this website.
