One of the best parts about eating out for breakfast at a pancake place are all the flavored fruit syrups! But what I hate are all the chemicals that fill those syrups…from dyes to fake flavoring…I hate it and I prefer that the kids don’t eat it. So when I was asked to pick a recipe off the Karo Syrup site, make it, and share with y’all, I scoured the site but decided that these DIY Homemade Fruit Syrups would be super fun.
Whether you’re a pro or a newbie in the kitchen, these syrups are the easiest thing to make. Plus, having a selection of homemade syrups for breakfast will get you cheers and appaulase from everyone. Promise!
I love cooking and baking from scratch…it shows my family that I care about them, about their health, and that I’m willing to take time out of my busy day for them. Every Sunday, we have a huge pancake breakfast with bacon and OJ. I started adding in this homemade syrup and now the family begs for pancakes every day!
Every Thanksgiving, I stock up on corn syrup and I’m brand loyal to Karo for my pecan pies. I always have been…it’s the brand my mom and granny used, so why wouldn’t I (it’s been around for over 100 years and has 0g of high fructose corn syrup). Plus, I love it! This is a great recipe to use up that last bit in the bottle after the holidays…or what the heck…just buy a giant bottle and make a different flavor every week!
- 1 cup Light Corn Syrup
- 1/2 cup jam OR preserves OR frozen fruit
- Mix corn syrup with jam, preserves or frozen fruit in a small sauce pan.
- If using JAM or PRESERVES: Heat on medium heat until well blended and hot; do NOT boil.
- If using FROZEN FRUIT: Heat on medium heat until well blended; simmer 2 to 3 minutes, until fruit is tender.
- Flavored syrups make delectable toppings for pancakes, waffles, French toast, crepes, ice cream or cake. Ideas for flavors include raspberry, orange, blueberry, peach and more!
