Helpers in the Kitchen

Some of my favorite moments this week was spent with family in the kitchen doing what we always do and loving every minute.

Kitchen clean up after dinner.

Cooling yogurt on the back burner and stirring syrup on the front burner. 

This was our first attempt at making pancake syrup.  It looked great, tasted great, and then it hardened in the bottle.  We will go back to square one on this project.  Any suggestions on how to keep it looking like pancake syrup?

Hi! You must have let the syrup boil too long. I have been doing this for about 15 years. My kids make the syrup as needed. We keep the leftovers in jars in the fridge and reheat in the microwave.

Thank you for the helpful tip. How long do you let your syrup boil? I think that I boiled mine for about 13 minutes and it did look like it was too long.

Here is a chart that shows the different stages of boiling anything sugary....useful for making candy.

I love making candy, so these stages are very useful to understand.

I love seeing your busy household working together. You are doing such a great job with your kids!
