Maple Syrup

  Since I didn't get to finish the New Years Recipe Blitz, I'm putting in a few more recipes for your pleasure. We have tried several recipes for syrup and I've settled on this one from RecipeZaar (now Sometimes I'll add a bit of butter in it and I usually use a bit more of the flavorings. Here it is as posted by WJKing on

3/4 c. white sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. water 
1 c. corn syrup
3 drops vanilla flavoring
3 drops maple flavoring

  Boil the water and the sugars together (we usually do it till soft ball stage- 235 degrees). Remove from heat add flavorings. Be very careful when placing in a bottle, making sure that you let it cool quite a bit. A friend had made hers and put it in the bottle too soon. When her young daughter opened the bottle the steam blew the hot syrup on her face. I like to put it in a mason jar for a homey look. We much prefer this over store-bought.
