jane's breakfast syrup

Recipe by

When I was small, I stood on a chair in the kitchen, with an apron tied around my chest, helping my mom (and dad) with cooking and cleaning. Mom washed, I rinsed. I learned the proper way to set a table. I learned how to make pancake batter from scratch (I've since forgotten the exact ingredients and measurements), and how to gauge doneness and flip the cakes in the skillet. And I learned to make syrup.
