“This was the syrup I grew up with. It tastes fabulous without all the extra work on getting real tapped maple syrup. It's also a cheaper way to have syrup, as these are things I always have in my cupboard.”

Although this is not the recipe we use, I love homemade syrup! I recently learned that covering the syrup and boiling about a minute reduces the chance of your syrup crystalizing.

Very good! I did not add the maple flavoring, I just used vanilla and it was delicious.

I've been seeking out DIY recipes to replace products we normally purchase at an inflated price with artificial ingredients, so in that regard, this recipe foots the bill. However, it was WAY sweet! I mean, it's syrup, so, duh, but WAY WAY WAY sweet, lol. It was good, but next time I will attempt with 1c white sugar and 1.5c water just to see what happens. At the very least, I can boil longer to achieve greater thickness and evap some water. I added homemade pure vanilla extract, 1/2 stick cinnamon (while cooking), and a couple tbs real maple syrup for flavor (didn't have any extract).
