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.
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.
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.
