Storage

Make sure the syrup is completely cool before storing in the fridge. This is important!

Refrigerate this syrup in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks. We use a mason jar but you can use any container that you have on hand. It is easy to pour if you use a glass jar container.

If serving this with pancakes or waffles and desire it warm, reheat in the microwave if preferred. We suggest reheating in 15 second intervals so it does not burn. However, this is optional and not necessary.

Brown Sugar Syrup is flavored with cinnamon sticks and mixed with brown sugar and water. It has a different taste than plain brown sugar and is also not the same as using white sugar.
