I like Kiteman's idea, but I would probably add a few drops of Maple Syrup Flavoring to it (if you LIKE maple syrup flavoring that is).

And if you do, then you can make "maple syrup flavored syrup" from it with the flavoring.

You can use it to Glaze hams;
OR placed in semi-permeable packets, it makes a great humectant for desiccation purposes, etc.

It is GREAT for fermentation purposes (whether the idea is to make drinkable alcohol like beers and wines, or to make cordials with alcohol, OR to make alcohol for fuel purposes - distilling required for tone one though).


It can add a slightly buttery tasted (corn syrup especially) if used instead of honey.

I think you might be able to find some recipes on line. As for making one's own alcohol, one wouldn't want to "drink it" if one distilled it and made it strong. If you mean adding it to say, Vodka, and some flavorings, one can make all kinds of drinks, if they can find the flavorings.

At one time I know I could get all kinds of flavorings to make different types of "drinks". B&B, schnopps, etc. from a cheap vodka base. I don't know if they are still available or not.

You can make this since you already have the syrup. Making monkey bread would be good too. Or you can even use it to make custard. My recipe for that is here. :)

So many possibilities! :)
