Homemade "Maple Syrup"
A lot of vegan recipes call for maple syrup. Here's an inexpensive recipe for those times when you can't afford the real thing.
makes 2 cups
2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup water
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon natural maple flavor (like this one)
Put the brown sugar into a medium saucepan. Put the cornstarch into a small bowl or cup and drizzle with about 2 tablespoons of the 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 is cool, stir in the maple flavor.
Store in the refrigerator.
