Homemade Syrup

My family loves pancakes!

So the other day I fixed blueberry pancakes.  When I went to get the syrup out of the cabinet, I found that we only had enough syrup for one person!  How could we eat pancakes without syrup?

I remembered that I had seen somewhere a recipe for homemade syrup.  I found the recipe and made some for us. 

They loved it!  And I was saved from being a really bad mom by not having syrup for the family favorite!

I was shocked at how simple and cheap it was!

Homemade Syrup

1 3/4 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 c. water
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. maple flavoring

Combine sugar and water in saucepan.  Boil for 1 to 3 minutes until it is the right thickness.  Then add flavorings and serve.

When I realized just how easy this was I decided to see how cheap it was.  So here is the breakdown.

Store bought syrup...........24 oz.........................$1.49
Homemade syrup.............24 oz.........................$0.60


This may not seem like a lot, but when you buy about 6 to 10 bottles a year it adds up!  Plus I know what's going into the syrup.

Check it out and let me know what you think...
