I have been making homemade maple syrup for quite some time now and we love it! I have tried quite a few different maple syrup recipes over the years, and I keep coming back to this plain and simple one. We like it the best. It took us a while to get used to it, as the homemade syrup is runnier than store-bought syrup. But now we get grossed out whenever we have store-bought syrup and see how goopy it is. So…like I said, it does take some time to get used to the runnier consistency, but I definitely think it is worth it! Enjoy!
Homemade Maple Syrup
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups sugar (organic or raw sugar, or Sucanat)
- 1/2 teaspoon Mapeline (maple extract)
In a saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Boil for a minute or two while stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add Mapeline. Stir well and allow to cool a little before serving.
I pour our syrup into a quart jar and then store any leftovers in the refrigerator. Love it!
