I love brown sugar…there is something so delicious about the warm, caramel like flavor that nothing seems to compare to. One day while watching the Food Network (of course) I saw a recipe being prepared with simple syrup when I had an “ah-ha” moment – Brown Sugar Simple Syrup!
I made the concoction which is so simple – by combining 2 parts light brown sugar to 1 part water. Simmer in saucepan over medium heat until the sugar has melted. Add a dash of salt and voila – a yummy, delicious syrup with a warm, caramel flavor.
Some of my favorite ways to use this syrup is over oatmeal, breakfast quinoa, in coffee, yogurt, salad dressings and so much more. I would definitely try it. I store mine in the refrigerator and use it all the time. Enjoy!
