TNT maple syrup recipe

I just made some maple flavored pancake syrup, and it was just ok. Anyone got a great recipe that doesn't involve buckets hanging from maple trees?

On special occasions (when my blood sugar level allows it), I use pure maple syrup (in small quantities). There is no recipe for it. It's simply bottled (or canned) pure maple syrup - from maple trees. Depending on how much you want to spend, there are several grades available (sugar concentration and water content percentage.)

Now, to make it stretch more if you use a lot, you could make a simple syrup (50/50 water and white granulated sugar brought to a boil and then cooled - DON'T just mix them together - it MUST be brought to a boil), and mix the cooled simple syrup with your maple syrup however much you choose to dilute it, and then, just for a little added something, add a few drops of vanilla extract.

Imitation Maple flavoring...

That ranks right down at the bottom below lima beans!

Was hoping VA Griller was going to provide some grilling recipes with a maple syrup glaze.

That's why they have pure maple syrup for those that have the big bucks to afford it and not have to deal with a substitute recipe.

Must be a taste thing because I love lima beans.

Straight from the maple tree it's called sap. The syrup is made after the sap is boiled down and filtered. It takes many gallons of sap to make a gallon of syrup.

And I know that I can get the real thing at the store, but it's expensive! I was hoping to get a good recipe that would allow me to make something better (and with less additives and preservatives) than the storebought pancake syrup I currently use.

Griller when I was a youngster my Grandmother made a "Maple Syrup" from a product called Mapleine. It was/is an imitation maple flavoring and was fabulous on hot buttered biscuits..For years I thought the product had been discontinued, but a few years ago I found it in of all places Wally World. I quickly bought out the shelf! ~~~ Is it Maple syrup? Of course not. Is it good? You bet!! Directions are on the box for a sugar syrup with flavoring added to taste. They suggest a little...I like a lot!

A little history Here...

Have Fun!

I use what Uncle Bob said, Mapeline.. good stuff! .. just mixed it with amber colored syrup bought from the store.. it was yummy, and my kids certainly didn't care that it wasn't pure maple syrup.. I also use it in my maple glaze for my cinnamon rolls.
