Adapted from a recipe by Lady2416 at allrecipes.com. A cheaper, less chemical-laden, homemade substitute for storebought "maple" syrup. Still not as good as the real thing, but better than the phony stuff. Don't use light brown sugar; it won't give the right flavor or color.
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1⁄4 cup corn syrup
- 3⁄4 teaspoon maple extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon butter flavor extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- In a saucepan, combine sugars, water and corn syrup. Place over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in extracts. Transfer to a glass jar and store in refrigerator. Reheat before using.
