It comes out tasting great, but I end up setting off the fire alarm half the time. Any tips on preventing syrup from burning? Should I be cooking it slower? Anything I'm missing?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, so thanks in advance! :)
If you are setting of the smoke alarm, then try lowering the heat. It may take a bit longer to cook the food, but maple syrup can be served without heating it up. It has already been 'cooked' in process of going from tree sap to maple syrup. Serve it separate over your eggs. Store at room temperature. If you must have it warm, then sit the bottle in hot water while your eggs are cooking.
And welcome to DC. I hope you stick around. This is a place of a lot of conversation and laughter. Along with a plethora of information regarding cooking and recipes.
