Maple Syrup

Ok, so my last post featured a recipe for a mixture to be used for pancakes, well I am following up on that post with a recipe for the crowning glory of pancakes, maple syrup. It is quick, easy, and delicious! What could be better?

Maple Syrup Recipe
* 1 cup water
* 2 cups sugar
* 1 or 2 teaspoons of Maple Extract
Pour sugar into a small pan. Slowly pour water on top. Turn stove on high. No need to stir.
After mixture starts to boil, check to see if all the sugar granules are dissolved. If they aren't, boil it for another 15-20 seconds. Pull off heat and pour a bit of maple extract into it. It's ready for use. It also stores well in the cupboard. Don't put it in the refrigerator or it will start to re-crystalize
