Nothing says Sunday morning breakfast like a tall, fluffy stack of hot buttermilk pancakes fresh off the griddle. And what better way to top off the family's favorite breakfast than with syrup made fresh from your kitchen.
The flavors of apple juice, honey and almonds team up for some delicious variations on the maple theme. Treat your family to a special breakfast of eggs, sausage and hot cakes, this weekend . . . but let them do the dishes. MAPLE-FLAVORED SYRUP
