Coconut Syrup

Go to

Note: I've tried this and it's fabulous! I don't like sharing it at the table. Such a great reminder of home.

Peach Syrup
1 can peaches w juice - place in a pot and mash up.
Mix in the following:
2 T brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Bring these three ingredients to a boil.
Thicken with cornstarch (2 T cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 c cold water).
Take off heat. Serve hot or lukewarm.
Store in refrigerator.

Note: Very good - we all liked it!

Note: I haven't tried these two below, but imagine they're good:

Nauvoo Syrup
1 c. butter
1 c. buttermilk
2 c. sugar
Mix above ingredients and bring to boil in LARGE pot (syrup will foam up when baking soda is added) for 2 min. Remove from heat.
Add following:
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp maple flavoring (extract)
Mix well and serve. Store in refrigerator

Maple Syrup
Homemade syrup can be made as thick as store-bought by replacing 1/2 of the water with corn syrup. You may also add butter flavoring purchased from the store. Both of these will increase the cost.
2 c. sugar
1 c. water
1 tsp maple extract
Bring water and sugar to a slow boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat before it comes to a rolling boil (to keep crystals from forming) Add flavoring as it is cooling. Store in refrigerator.
