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.
