A very excellent substitute for maple syrup to serve on hot griddle
cakes is prepared from 2 pounds of either brown or white sugar and
1-3/4 cups of water, in the following manner: Place the stew-pan
containing sugar and water on the back part of range, until sugar
dissolves, then boil from 10 to 15 minutes, until the mixture thickens
to the consistency of honey. Remove from the range and add a few drops
of vanilla or "mapleine" flavoring. A tiny pinch of cream of tartar,
added when syrup commences to boil, prevents syrup granulating; too
large a quantity of cream of tartar added to the syrup would cause it
to have a sour taste.
