Praline syrupCane Sugar SyrupPraline syrup

After a few comments about the problems with High Fructose Corn Syrup I was determined to find an organic way to make the Praline Syrup without using corn syrup. I found a jar of something called cane sugar syrup made by Abram Lyle and Sons. It didn’t have corn, or HFCS or anything that I could summize was bad for you other than plain ole cane sugar. I bought it since it said it could be substituted for corn syrup in recipes. I put the recipe together just as instructed and the flavor in the pot was amazing. It tasted just like a praline topping for ice cream. It was sweet but the texture was just the perfect consistency for a pancake syrup. I also changed the dark brown sugar for organic light brown sugar since I thought, which I was correct, that the extra molasses in the dark brown sugar would be too overpowering.
