Frugal Fruit Syrup

Welcome to my new followers and "Hello" to my other readers.  I hope that you are having a wonderful Christmas season.  Thank you for taking the time from your busy lives to read this blog.  It is much appreciated.

Yesterday I was a guest poster over at CJ’s blog, Morsels of Life.  The recipe, Peachy Pear Dream Bars, requires drained, canned fruit.  I was left with fruit juice to do something with so I decided to make some fruit-flavored syrup for pouring over pancakes, waffles, etc.

This is not so much a recipe as a formula since it depends on how much fruit juice there is to work with.  I had about 2 cups of drained fruit juice from the two cans of fruit I needed.  The syrup needs twice as much sugar as liquid so this would require 4 cups of sugar.  Heat the juice and sugar together until the sugar is dissolved.  Measure to see how much liquid there is.  Return to saucepan.  Dissolve 1 T. cornstarch for each cup of liquid in a little water.  Add to the sauce and bring to a boil.  Boil a minute or so until syrup thickens.  Cool and keep in the refrigerator.  Keeps for a long time.  For fruit/maple syrup add 1/2 t. or more maple extract.

 I want to thank CJ again for allowing me to guest post on her blog.  Check out the Morsels of Life for great recipes like Cheddar Bacon Potatoes, Taco Seasoning, Chicken Yakisoba, and English Toffee Cookies.  Be sure to stop by on Fridays for Five Friday Finds.  You'll be glad you did.
