My Gramma has always made her own syrup out of brown sugar and water. Whenever we would visit as kids, Gramps would make us all customized pancakes (I usually got a letter "J") and Gramma would be busy at the stove whisking the syrup. This is a great, simple recipe that costs only around $1 or so to make.
|Even as an adult my Gramps still makes me "J" pancakes! Here's us in Arizona on St Patrick's Day 2014!|
Recipe makes 2 cups

Combine brown sugar and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Allow mixture to come to a boil, then cook for 1 minute for maple syrup consistency or 1.5-2 minutes for a thicker syrup.
