A little while ago I had made "strawberry syrup" made with white syrup and adding Kool-aid or jello to it. When I wanted to make it again I had misplaced the recipe. Does anyone have this? Thanks
Jell-o Pancake Syrup
1 small box Jell-o or other flavored gelatin
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
I should say first that this is a real working recipe. It might seem like a child's experiment, but I'm 52 years old and have used this for many years.
The directions are very simple:
Mix the gelatin, sugar, cornstarch and water together in a small saucepan and bring to a rolling boil.
Pour into pitcher and let cool until syrup thickens slightly.
Serve over pancakes or waffles while still warm.
You might consider cutting the ingredients in half if you're only serving a small group. This syrup doesn't store well -- it becomes to thick over time.
Enjoy as many flavors of pancake syrup as there are flavors of Jell-o with this easy recipe.
What did you use the Strawberry syrup for? In the stores here we buy chocolate syrup and strawberry syrup for adding to milk. Is that what you used it for?
I use mine for pancakes, french toast, etc. It's very good!
Hi Grammy24!! Just did a bit of surfing...could this be your recipe? www.cdkitchen.com/
You have made my day! Yes, this is the recipe I was looking for. Thanks.
You're more than welcome, Grammy24. I'm so happy it's the right recipe. It's always disappointing to lose recipes we really like....I know.....I've been there :)
I'll have to say this recipe sounds REALLY good! I've never heard of this and can't wait to try it out!
I peeked at recipe and it looks god and easy
my 2 fav things. I was wondering does any know
how far in advance you can make it? I was thinking
oops meant GOOD
It will keep for a long time as I have had it in the "frig" for 6 months (maybe longer) and it was still good. When I made it I used a pint jar of white syrup (no measuring) and poured the mixture back in. I put the rest in another container using the smaller container first.
This recipe sounds good too. Next time I make pancakes I will try this. Since we live miles from town we just don't hop in the car to get one thing or even two things so this will be handy to have. Thanks
If "the syrup doesn't store well...becomes too thick over time..."
Why could you not bring it back to a boil and add a bit more water. You did not mention a diminished taste so I am assuming that it would still taste great it just gets thick because of the gelatin.
Sounds like an easy recipe to make. I usually make waffles once a week for breakfast for everyone here so I'd like to try it sometime.
