I have made real maple syrup by collecting maple sap and boiling it down,it's very time consuming and you need to purchase certain things to collect the sap.But you have to have a maple tree to do this also.It takes forty gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup,so that explains why it is so expensive. To make your own maple flavored syrup:1 cup white sugar, 1 cup light or dark brown sugar your choice you could also use all brown sugar if desired, 1 cup water, 1/4 teas.vanilla, 1/4 teas. maple flavor if desired.Mix altogether and cook over a med-med high heat stirring often for 15-20 when done stir in 3 Tab.butter.You can use less water or more sugar depending on how thick you like your syrup or even cook a little longer.This will keep about 1 month stored in the refrigerator.It might crystallize if it does just zap in the microwave for about one minute and stir,serve warm.My Mom used to do this all the time.With all the price increases lately I'm looking for more economical ways to save.These types of things are what drive your grocery bill up.

When I was growing up, we used Mapeline, the flavoring sold by McCormick, white sugar, and water. That's it. Cheap and delicious! I've always loved it and in fact I still feel that no imitation syrup (Log Cabin or Mrs. Butterworth or whatever) ever compared to good ole Mapeline. Now, if I'm feeling indulgent, I'll spoil myself with the real thing (cheapest at Costco, by the way), but otherwise, it's Mapeline syrup for me. The recipe is on the bottle.

Next time, though, I might try adding the butter. That sounds like it would add a nice smoothness to the texture.

I have read that if you use regular (or brown) sugar and add some corn syrup it will help prevent crystallization.  I do not know if honey or agave syrup would do the same thing or not. I don't think it takes much of the corn syrup to accomplish this. Possibly with the 2 cups of sugar listed above replacing 1/4 cup of the white sugar with corn syrup would be enough.

When I was a kid and the cheapest maple flavored syrup was out of our price range we ate plain old sorgum Yell syrup.
I learned to really like maple flavored syrup and today, when I buy the real stuff, I think about the imitation and what a treasure that was.

I am more of a fan of honey than syrup.  As a bonus, I understand if you use local honey it will help you with allergies.  But I would never try to keep bees to be able to get my own honey.  Sap from trees sound better!  LOL

Amy, that's exactly what my mother did for us when we were growing up.  Occasionally she bought Log Cabin. I remember it came in a tin can in the shape of a log cabin.  Most of the time it was Mapeline though.
I really prefer the real thing and got some at Sam's last sunday.

My mom used to make this anytime she ran out of syrup,I'm doing it because I think it's cheaper that buying the store bought pancake syrup,this will never be as good as real maple syrup but it's a good sub if you run out.I made the blueberry syrup for a fraction of the cost of store bought.it really was tasty.

When I was growing up we didn't get to the store very often -- gas rationing, money etc so we made a lot of things at home including syrup. Maple was good but mom also made fruit syrups.  Sometimes that had a homemade jelly base but I don't remember what she did to convert jelly to the right consistency for syrup for pancakes or french toast.
