From Julie L.

Growing up, my mom made all of our syrup. As a result, I’ve never developed a taste for store-bought syrup with a corn syrup base. In fact, I think it’s kind of yucky. To me, this tastes a lot more like real maple syrup. And since the recipe uses basic ingredients, it’s easy to use in our food storage plan, too. –Mellyn

Yield: About 2 cups

  • 2 cups water
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon maple extract
  1. Bring water to a near-boil in a medium saucepan.
  2. Stir in sugar until dissolved.
  3. Add maple extract.
  4. Store in the refrigerator (I use a canning jar) for a month or more.

One thought on “Syrup

  1. My Dad made the same thing when I was growing up! Great idea to post the recipe, however, I have since acquired a wonderful taste for the yucky store brands-ha!
