Potato Pancake Syrup

This is just one of those odd ideas which actually work. For some reason you are out of maple syrup and you want to make pancakes. Possibly on your boat and you can’t sail over to the corner store and pick up something which would work. As long as you have potatoes, water, white and brown sugar this recipe will work. It has to be kept in a fridge for up to three days but can be frozen for future use!


6 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
2 cups water
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
Maple flavouring (optional) 


Boil potatoes in water until only half of the water has evaporated, then strain off the water.
Bring this remaining 1 cup of water to boil and add the white and brown sugar.
Cool and add flavouring.
