Inexpensive Pancake Syrup

I like to make this syrup because it has few ingredients, easy to make, and tastes great. It is thinner than commercial syrup but at least I can read the entire ingredient list and know what is in it.

You will need:
1 1/2 C. brown sugar
1 1/2 C. water
1/2 C. white sugar
3/4 C. light corn syrup
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. maple flavoring (optional)

Combine sugars, water, and corn syrup in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for approximately 7-9 minutes to thicken slightly.
Remove from heat and stir in salt, vanilla, and maple flavoring if using. Cool completely before pouring into bottle or jar. Does not need to be refrigerated.

*Note* I have never used the maple flavoring in this syrup and it still tastes “maple” enough for my family.
