I prefer only real maple syrup, but miss the thickness of the fake syrups. I recommend using light brown sugar vs dark. After completely cooled & a taste test I increased the maple extract to nearly another tsp. I buy the maple extract from Kroger.

I was very disappointed in this recipe. It just didn't come out at all. I am not a novice cook and have made syrups before but this was just not good. Very grainy I am not sure I will try it again, if I do I will update review. But at this point not so much.

This worked out nicely - I added a tsp of vanilla. Family ate it up!

I have yet to go out and buy maple extract, so I just use pure vanilla and it's delicious. I've found that adding more butter makes this even tastier with no more effort. I looked for this recipe when we were out of maple syrup and have been alternating between maple syrup and this gem ever since.

Will make time and time again! Loved it. Tastes like my mom's.

I like this recipe because it's very easy and I didn't have corn syrup for one of the other recipes that I reviewed. I'm wondering why I would need it at all. My syrup came out nice and thick although the butter made it a little less clear. I use raw sugar with the light brown sugar and I also used the same amount of vanilla and it is delicious. I saved my old bottle and I used for this recipe a vinegar bottle and it made about 2 cups. Thank you

Super easy and the kids loved it! And, even though it isn't good for them, I feel much better giving my kids this syrup vs the syrup with high fructose corn syrup as the main ingredient! I also made a version with rum extract and vanilla extract!
