After learning that the inexpensive maple syrup you buy in the store is extremely bad for you, I decided I needed to find a way to make my own. After searching through dozens of recipes and some trial and error, this is what I came up with. You can find maple extract in the grocery store near the vanilla extract. One batch of this recipe costs almost nothing.
