We made the Cinnamon Pecan Waffles and I had to have maple syrup. I do NOT like store bought (I will repeat in person if you need me to) maple syrup. Too thick, and too...something. It's probably because I grew up on homemade. Crescent makes Mapleine, which is imitation maple flavoring.
makes 2-3 cups
1 cup boiling water
2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon Mapleine (or any maple flavoring)
Dissolve sugar in boiling water, remove from heat then add maple.
Simple as that...and delicious.
