Grandfather’s Syrup


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • 1 cup water (the softer the better)
  • 3 cups refined white vegan sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegan corn syrup


My Grandfather doesn’t measure anything, so the quantities are only
approximate. 🙂

Boil water and add vegan sugar. Stir continuously until completely
dissolved. Take off heat and add corn syrup. (The corn syrup is used
to prevent crystals, >8-) you want syrup and not fudge.)

If you have difficulty getting all the vegan sugar in solution, add some
more water. If your syrup isn’t thick enough for your taste, boil
again and add more.

Variations: Add 2 tablespoons of Molasses. Add Imitation Maple Extract
to taste (strengths vary). Substitute vegan brown sugar for white sugar
(although white refined vegan sugar is actually brown sugar with the
molasses removed, so this is essentially the same as the first
variation). For Old Fashioneds (does anybody drink
those anymore?) and other bar drinks, make a thinner mixture and add
0.5 tsp of Vanilla Extract.

Cleanup: You can clean up your spoons, saucepans, etc., by simply
boiling some water. Voila! – the mess dissolves. Warm water on a
sponge is great for spills, spatters, the occasional boilover (I _did_
say stir continuously, didn’t I?) and the like.
