Homemade "Mrs.Butterworth's" Syrup

I used the recipe for Homemade "Maple" Syrup to give me inspiration for a syrup that we like a little more then the pure stuff. OMG was it good! Enjoy!

Homemade "Mrs. Butterworth's" Syrup

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup water
1 tsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp rum flavoring
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt

Put the brown sugar & salt into a medium saucepan. Place the cornstarch in a small bowl or cup and drizzle with about 2 tbs. of water. Stir or whisk with a fork until the cornstarch is dissolved, then add it to the saucepan along with the rest of the water.

Stir or whisk constantly over medium-high heat, until the mixture comes to a boil. Boil one minute, still stirring.

Remove the saucepan from the heat, and let the syrup cool completely. When it's cool, stir in the extracts.

A little runnier than we prefer. I added another teaspoon of cornstarch and boiled for another minute or two and it seemed to solve the problem.

We're out of syrup and my Dudette is wanting pancakes so I did a search and find this. I'm about to give it a go. Many thanks for making the recipe available!

It was good, but I wouldn't call it Mrs. Butterworth's. Tasted like rum candy.
