The complex taste of real maple syrup eludes most home recipes because of a lack of ingredients. True maple syrup isn't just sweet. It has a subtle astringency and a smokey essence brought out by the hardwood trees it's taken from.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat water and sugar til begins to boil. Turn down heat to slowly boil for 15 minutes, remove from heat and add remaining ingredients - vanilla last. This is thicker than real M.S. but thin stuff won't store without refrigeration - this will. I like syrup to be alive and astringent so you might want to reduce the lemon to half the amount if you prefer just sweet.
