This only took me a few minutes and made about 16 oz (I doubled the recipe). Water, sugar, corn syrup and Imitation Maple flavoring. I didn't do the exact math but this recipe only costs cents to make. Now I am excited to mess with the recipe and try to cut or substitute some of the sugar. Any suggestions?
2 Cups Sugar
1 Cup Water
1 teaspoon Maple Extract
Bring water and sugar to a slow boil Over low heat, stirring constantly. Don't let it come to a rolling boil as that would cause crystals. Remove.from heat. As it cools, add the flavoring. Transfer to a storage container. Store in the refrigerator. For thicker syrup replacenhalf.of the water with corn syrup.
