    After running out of store bought syrup, I decided to look into making my own. This was quick and delicious. I don't know if I will ever buy it again! Thanks!

    We had this with buttermilk pancakes and again over vanilla ice cream. I used the rum extract. Simple, yummy and a great seasonal aroma - (it is early Fall here). Will be making again.
