Flavored Syrups.1

I have a confession to make. I don’t like maple syrup – flavored or real! I’m sure my Canadian son-in-laws would be disgraced to hear that since it’s like a food group to them. Anyway, when my friend gave me the recipes for some flavored syrups I just had to give them a try.

Flavored syrups 4.1

Strawberry Syrup
2 Tbls water
1 Tbls corn starch
Combine these 2 ingredients and set aside
2 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
Combine these 3 items in a saucepan on the stove until boiling. Turn down and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the water and corn starch mixture. Blend well. Take off heat and let cool before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.

This is also delicious on ice cream, cheesecake, fresh bread, and in smoothies.

Flavored syrups 5.1

Cinnamon Syrup
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1 cup Karo syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
Mix in saucepan and cook until boiling. Boil for 2 minutes. Take off heat and add
1 cup whipping cream
Serve warm. Syrup will thicken as it cools. Refrigerate leftovers.

This is also delicious on ice cream and apples with nuts sprinkled on top.

Both syrups can also be stored in the freezer for up to a year. I freeze them in mason jars. Both of these syrups are very good, but the cinnamon syrup is very sweet. Hubby likes the strawberry syrup best on waffles. Of course, I love them both.

I think you’re the first person I’ve heard who doesn’t like maple flavor anything like me! Thanks for some great syrup ideas!

That cinnamon syrup sounds so good! I make maple all of the time but never thought to add some additional flavors into the mix!

These sound amazing! I haven’t ever made my own syrup before, but if it is this easy I might as well give it a try. Thanks for the recipe.

Oh, how tasty are these? I bet my girls would love that strawberry syrup, and I love your idea of using the cinnamon on apples.
