Here’s an easy DIY recipe for (faux) maple syrup.

You’ll Need:
1 c. Water
1/2 c. Sugar
1 c. brown sugar
1/8 tsp cornstarch
1 Tbs Maple Extract

In a saucepan combine the sugars and cornstarch, stirring to mix, add 1 cup of COLD water, stirring to dissolve the sugars. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Cook, stirring occasionally until the syrup reaches the thickness you prefer. Add the Maple Extract, stirring again to incorporate, reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes.

Remove from heat and bottle. If you prefer butter enhanced Maple syrup, add 2 tbs of butter with the maple extract.

All leftover syrup should be refrigerated and used within 60 days.

Try to avoid over-stirring the syrup as it boils as this causes the sugars to crystallize.
