My hubby likes to use fruit syrup on his pancakes and waffles, but it's so expensive to buy in stores, so, I started making this version. He likes it just as well as store bought! (yield below is a rough guess!)


  1. Combine juice and sugar in medium sauce pan.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Let boil for a few minutes (until sugar is completely dissovled).
  4. Let cool for about 30 minutes.
  5. Pour into containers (I used an old glass syrup bottle) and store in fridge.

This works well. It does taste better with some juices vs others. I originally tried it with apple juice and would have rated it 4 stars but then I tried mango nectar and yummy! We use this over gluten free crepes and pancakes.

The waffles were hot and crisp, but there was no maple syrup in the house... so i decided to try this recipe. Superb! Used banana juice this time, but will try it with other varieties. I think I boiled too long, as it started forming threads from the spoon when it started to cool. Next time I'll take it off earlier. Thanks for the recipe
