Well I have been beyond frustrated with the syrup situation. I HATE regular pancake syrup as it usually has corn syrup in it. So we've been grabbing organic maple syrup from Target. Although pure and tasty it is SIX DOLLARS a jar and we use almost an entire jar in one sitting.
SO I found this: http://somewhereinthemiddle-missylou.blogspot.com/2009/06/homemade-maple-syrup_03.html
Homemade syrup. I had NO IDEA it was this easy. I'm going to start making it and storing it in jars. Seriously, this stuff is so easy and so cheap!
