Maple Flavored Syrup
We use this basic syrup on pancakes, waffles, and to make granola.
1 cup water
2 cups granulated sugar (white or unrefined)
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon maple flavored extract
Bring the water, sugar, and molasses to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.
Take off heat and stir in the maple extract.
Let cool until no longer hot.
Store in a sealed glass mason jar in refrigerator (needs refrigeration since it does not contain preservatives like store purchased varieties). Usually good for months in the refrigerator.
