This syrup has become a staple in our home. About 10 years ago I discovered it in an old cookbook. We lived in Oregon at the time, due to us being at sea level it took 7 minutes to cook. Here in Idaho we live at a much higher elevation so it cooks faster about 4 or 5 minutes
Use a big pot because this syrup foams up while cooking. The picture above is the color when you first start cooking.
