I love to make different syrups and sauces and make breakfast a new experience for one and all. I have a few in my "sweet little family" that just prefer the "Ol' standby"...but they are good sports and always try my new creations...they usually end up liking them too. This one is a fun syrup for spring, something fresh and new...get out of the "dreary maple syrup routine" for one morning and try this.
1 c. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
2 c. cold water
2 c. fruit (you can use fresh or frozen (thawed)...if using canned fruit, use the juice from the fruit in place
of your water)
1/2 package of sugar-free jello (flavor of your choice)
Combine sugar and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Add cold water. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add jello and stir in until its dissolved. Add fruit and continue to cook until thick, stir continually to keep syrup from scorching. Once your syrup is thick, remove from heat and pour into a cup with a spout. Serve in place of maple syrup...give it a try, you never know, you just might like it.
