Who knew that maple syrup was so incredibly fast and easy to make. Not to mention that it is delicious!!
What you'll need:
1 cup hot hot water
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 T Maple flavoring
In a medium saucepan, combine water and both sugars. Stir constantly over high heat until boiling. Be VERY careful as this will boil over really easily at this point!
Reduce heat to medium-high and continue to stir constantly until all of the sugar has dissolved. Continue stirring mixture over medium to medium-high heat for about 5 minutes until mixture begins to thicken to a syrup consistency. Keep in mind that this mixture will further thicken when cool. *I tested mine by scooping a small amount into a glass dish and setting it in the freezer for 1-2 minutes* Remove from heat and stir in maple flavoring.Set pan in an ice bath and continue to stir mixture for 3-5 minutes to cool.
