B Is for Browned Sugar Syrup

Gail Lee McGhee wrote this memory for the recipe book, Grandmother’s Legacy: A Collection of Butler County Recipes from the 1920s and 30s.

“In the thirties, we didn’t get to town very often to buy groceries. I don’t remember my parents ever having bought syrup. Mother would make ours from these directions.”

Browned Sugar Syrup

Brown some white sugar over a slow fire, constantly stirring the sugar as it slowly browns. When there is not any white left, pour a cup of water into the sugary mess. The mixture will instantly become a hard crackling texture. Slowly the boiling mixture will dissolve and thicken to a sweet tasting brown syrup.
