      I did use the butter to reduce the foam and it worked! I just happened to have a leftover pancake from breakfast to do a taste test with what little syrup that didn't fit in the jar. Oh my...I really am going to enjoy this on my french toast some cold North Dakota morning!

      Delicious!! With 8 gallons of chokecherry juice to use, I really appreciate a great recipe like this! I added 1/4 tsp real butter at step 3 from previous experience and it REALLY helps reduce the foam to almost nothing. Great recipe, thanks so much! ~TJ

      I just finished making 5 batches of this syrup. For the first batch I was a little cautious and boiled for 1 1/2 minutes just to be sure it wouldn't be too runny and it was almost too thick! For the remaining batches I followed the recipe exactly and the result each time was a syrup of perfect consistency. Thank-you for this recipe.
