Maple Syrup

In making your own maple syrup, you realize just how unhealthy it is, but it's so good! So I try to not remember all the sugar and butter that goes into it as I eat this yummy syrup! :)


2 cups water
1-2 dashes of cinnamon
4 cups white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup Karo light syrup
1/2 cube butter
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 tablespoon maple flavor


Bring water to a boil. Stir sugars and cinnamon together before adding to the water. Add sugar and all other ingredients to the water. Bring to a boil again. Reduce heat to medium/low and simmer for 1-2 minutes.

*I usually let the leftover syrup cool and then store it in a container (i.e. the ones that you usually put salad dressings in). Not sure how long it's supposed to last in the refrigerator, but we keep ours for months and it tastes fine warmed up again in the microwave!
