Maple Syrup

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Pvt Amys Mom

We have been making our own syrup forever and it is soooo easy. We recently had guests for the weekend and had a pancake breakfast. They had never had homemade syrup before so I decided to post it. There are a couple other syrup recipes on here, but none with the same ingredients.

This is my favorite recipe for and easy! I use 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar; then add 1/2 tsp vanilla along with the maple extract.
