This is a special syrup that my grandmother Mabel Kennedy Sullivan use to make... it is a nice alternative to the usual maple syrup! I remember my grandmother warning us kids to let the syrup cool a bit before we tried it... "You don't want a sugar burn! Sugar burns are the worst!!!" I find myself saying the same thing to my grandchildren! lol

serves about 3 cups

How To Make orange syrup

  • 1
    Bring the water, sugar and zest to a full boil, stirring constantly let it boil for about 5 minutes. Add the lemon and orange juices. Bring back to a boil for about 5 more minutes or until the syrup is the desired consistancy. Let cool a bit (don't want to burn your mouth!) **** Serve over fry bread, waffles, pancakes or biscuits. *** This stores well in a jar in the refrigerato for about a month.
