Homemade Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp maple extract
Homemade Buttermilk Syrup
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Homemade Strawberry Syrup
  • 3 cups strawberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup water divided
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Homemade Maple Syrup
  1. In a medium pot, bring sugars and water to a boil for 1 minutes. Whisk in extracts. Allow to cool for at least 30 minutes before using.
Homemade Buttermilk Syrup
  1. Combine buttermilk, sugar, and butter in a pot over medium high heat, and stir, allowing butter to melt and ingredients to combine. Bring to boil for 1 minutes, then remove from heat. Whisk in baking soda and vanilla until combined - mixture will foam, so you may want to do this over the sink! Serve while still warm, or heat up if using from refrigerator.
Homemade Strawberry Syrup
  1. Combine strawberries and 1/2 cup water in a pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook 15-20 minutes, until berries have broken down. Stir in remaining water and remove from heat. Strain juice from berries using a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl. Discard solids, and return juice to pot, adding sugar and bringing to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer another 5-10 minutes until thickened. Whisk in vanilla and remove from heat. Serve while warm.
