Holy Moly. I didn’t realize how much I like breakfast until I made this list.
You just can’t beat good old maple syrup…well, until you see the price. The pure maple syrup that we by is on average $20 per quart. With as much as we go through syrup, (yeah, we basically drink it) I was desperate to find a way to make my own, that is, without planting a tree and draining it, or whatever else they do to it to make it so delicious!
It’s just a simple little recipe, but the flavor is spectacular! I bought a whole thing of maple flavor for $4 at Whole Foods that’ll make TONS of batches of this homemade maple syrup. Can’t beat that when you’re on a budget!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
Homemade Maple Syrup
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon maple flavor
- Bring all of the ingredients to a boil, continuing to boil until all of the sugar has melted, stirring throughout.
- Remove from heat and let come to room temperature.
- Pour into containers and store in the fridge for up to 3 months.
What area of the store could I find the maple flavor?
I found the maple flavor near the extracts and spices. 😀
Very cool! I can’t wait to try this!
Thanks for posting this! My Mom has told us before that Grandma used to make maple syrup when she was a child. With 10 kids to feed buying it was out of the question. She doesn’t have the recipe though so this is great. Thanks!
this is such a simple, great recipe. I cant wait to try it 🙂 how much does this recipe yield do you know?
I didn’t measure it…and we’ve managed to use it all within two weeks already! If I had to guess, I’d say about 2 cups of syrup. So yummy! Time to make another batch!
What a great idea! I can’t wait to give this a try!
Great!!! I’m making a new pancake recipe every weekend (last Sunday I made your sweet potato pancakes) and I ran out of maple syrup. I’ll buy maple flavor and make my homemade maple syrup (I also make my homemade buttermilk). 🙂
I made this syrup this morning for our Sunday waffles & it was delicious! So easy & a great way to save, thank you for sharing!
