My egg stock is quite full. Yay!! So tonight I wanted to fix French toast, we do a lot of breakfast for supper since we don’t eat breakfast, but, I didn’t have any syrup….. I have watched my grandma make syrup tons of times and ate it with her many times, I for some reason have never made it myself. We all know I’m that girl that likes to make anything she can so I decided tonight I was making syrup!!! Yippie! After looking through a few handfuls of recipes I made my decision and gave it a shot!
In a medium size saucepan I put:
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 1/2 white sugar
1/2 tsp. moms homemade vanilla
& 2 cups light Karo syrup
I warmed it at a medium temperature and stirred it until it all melted together and was smooth, about 12 minutes. Then I let it cool while I made French toast and chewy bacon. I poured it in a wine bottle I had lying around waiting to be reused for something and served! Yummy! The kids and husband all approved!
It was so easy and fun to make! I don’t know why it took me so long to try it!!!
Have you ever had or made homemade syrup? Did you like it? How did you make it? Would you do anything different? I wana hear all about it! Leave me a comment!
Thanks and happy cooking!
