Apple Syrup

This delicious alternative to maple syrup makes a great change-of-pace topper for French toast and other morning meals. "My husband doesn't feel deprived when I serve this syrup with his waffles and pancakes," says Barbara Hill of Oil Springs, Ontario.

    I made this for my waffles this morning and was pleased with how it tasted. I love the spices in it and it was thick. When I compared it to my lite pancake syrup I really Liked it! A lot less calories and just 1 gram of sodium. That is really good. I was very pleased!!

    Very good. I didn't have enough Apple Juice, but substituted unsweetened Apple Sauce for the remainder of the liquid and left out the cornstarch. It turned out great! I also added some butter, which gave it a nice rich flavor. My husband and I enjoyed it with some waffles, definitely will make again.
