I invented this recipe because I was looking for a sugar-free maple syrup without all the additives and chemicals. This recipe is very simple to make. It doesn’t have that “artificial sweetener” taste.
In a small saucepan add:
1/3 cup Xylitol sweetener
Using 1/2 cup xylitol with no stevia tastes great, but use caution if you are a new user to Xylitol; some people can experience stomach upset and diarrhea at first because it is a sugar alcohol. Also note that some Xylitol is made from corn, although, I’ve recently found a product called Xyla that is made from Birch Bark.
1/4 teaspoon powdered stevia
*If you prefer to use sugar just use 1/2 cup sugar to 1/2 cup water.
1 teaspoon tapioca flour (or your choice thickener)
mix together and add:
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon of Frontier Maple Flavoring (this brand does not have any sulfites)
Heat to boiling on medium heat, stirring constantly. Once it is boiling it will thicken in just a few seconds to a maple syrup consistency. It’s important to pour into container immediately so syrup can begin to cool. Otherwise, it will continue to thicken too much. Enjoy!
I store in a small syrup pitcher in frig. covered with plastic wrap for several days.
