One new thing I have just started trying is making my own pancake syrup. I found the following recipe from Jonnie McCoy’s book: Miserly Moms Living Well on Less in a Tough Economy.
2 cups sugar
1 Cup water
1 tsp mapel extract (bought this at Meijer’s).
Bring the water and sugar to a slow boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat before it comes to a boil. Add the maple extract. Store in the refrigerator.
If you like it thicker, replace half the water with Karo syrup. I was a bit skeptical, but decided to give it a shot. It turned out just fine and I have been using it every since on our weekend waffles or pancakes. I prefer it a little thicker, but my husband likes the original recipe better, so I make it that way. I usually make hal this recipe and we use it all the day I make it. I asked the children what they thought of it and they said they did not notice a difference. There is a HUGE difference in expense.
Here is what Jonni Calculates:
