In Response to Re: Homemade Maple Flavored Syrup:
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.

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.
