    I'm giving this four stars because the flavor was delicious; very subtle. It reminded me of homemade apple pie filling, without the chunks! The rest of my family love their fruit syrups, so weren't as excited about it and gave it three stars...But, since we tried it on pancakes, my 6-year old said she'd be willing to try it again on french toast like the recipe mentioned!

    WOW, Wow, Wow!!! Soooooo good. I did cut the suagr down to just a hair over 1/3 cup and out of necessity had to use lime juice as opposed to lemon juice. This is absolutely incredible stuff, I think I could bath in it. I used it over recipe #43954 and the combination of the two was to die for. I am already thinking of other ways I could use this. And it could not be easier to make. Top notch flavor for very little effort! Heavenly, MG, simply heavenly.

    So easy and so good!!! It was done in just minutes. Made it to go with gingerbread pancakes, but ran to the store for some apple pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert tonite!

    delicious! I made it alongside this caramel sauce ( and it was even more popular, which is saying something. It was my boyfriend's birthday and he loves caramel apple flavors, so I used it along with the caramel as a topping for pancakes, and I also added it, along with the caramel, to this milkshake recipe ( to make caramel apple milkshakes.

    Fantastic and a nice change from maple syrup. Made this the night before to save some time in the morning ~ just heated it up in the MW. Served with recipe #360112. Can't wait to try this on ice cream, oatmeal, pie ~ oh! the possibilities are endless! Thanks for posting this Mysterygirl! Made for Comfort Cafe ~ Winter 2010.
