Aunt Jemima Maple Syrup

Source: Top Secret Recipes.

You may get more bang for your buck if you just bought the syrup at the store (I'm not sure), but in times of need (ahh! I don't have any syrup- as happened to us yesterday) this is a good recipe to have on hand since you will most likely have all of these ingredients. Turned out great! We only made half the recipe and have tons left over! Makes 1 quart as is.

2 c water
1 c sugar
2 c dark corn syrup
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp maple flavoring

Combine all except maple flavoring in saucepan over medium heat. Stir occasionally until it comes to a full boil. Boil 7 minutes. Turn off heat and cool 15 minutes. Add maple and stir.

This was our first time making it, but the book also said to acheive a butter flavor, add 3 Tbsp of butter to the mixture before heating. We haven't tried it so let us know if you do try it that way and what you think.
