Imitation Maple Syrup

Mum used to make this,  and we thought it was the real thing.  Of course after the war,  you couldn't buy many things,  so people made do.  Many years later when I found the real Canadian Maple Syrup,  I understood how clever Mum was.  This recipe, made in the TMX is as close as I can remember it.  You may wish to adapt the various components to suit your taste.

250g.  Honey,  ( I used yellow Box)
200g.  Golden Syrup
1 tablespoon of Vanilla Extract.
1 Dessertspoon of Cornflour mixed in 1/2 cup of water
1Tablespoon of lemon juice
a pinch of both Cinnamon and salt.

Weigh and measure all ingredients into TMX bowl.
Zap to combine.
Cook 100o /15 minutes /speed 2.

Taste and adjust as need be.  The flavor of the honey can make a big difference to the end result.
