My Dad (Richard), came up with this recipe quite a while ago. I just recently started making it much to the delight of my girls. If you like a stronger maple flavor, feel free to add a little more maple syrup!
Makes about 1 quart
1 cup EACH dark brown sugar and light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups corn syrup
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cups water
Mix all ingredients together in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Remove from heat as soon as it reaches a boil. Store on shelf or refrigerate and heat before use. Please note, this will be slightly thicker than typical syrup, you can warm it prior to serving to thin it out a little bit.
