Maple Syrup

My dad makes his own maple syrup all the time and when I was younger, I was convinced that he must be a cooking genius to be able to make syrup from scratch. He still may be a really good cook, but it turns out that maple syrup really isn't that hard to make.


I love pouring it over some nice, hot pancakes and topping it off with some cool whip. Best. Breakfast. Ever.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1-1/2 tsp. maple extract

Directions:
  1. Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil - For thinner syrup, remove immediately. For thicker syrup, let boil for 2 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and add maple extract.
  3. Stir until well combined.

Syrup is definitely my favorite out of the four main food groups. ;) (Elf anyone?) Enjoy!
