Sweet Lemon Syrup


Consider this a multi-purpose syrup. It’s like lemon pie in a syrup. It is really good on pancakes especially with whipped cream but it works very well on desserts and ice cream as well.

Try this syrup on our
Lemon Meringue Pancakes!

You can buy a syrup and dessert sauce mix similar to this.  The lemon syrup mix is made with a lemon pie filling as the base and has ingredients to reduce sugar crystallization.  This mix is great to have on hand when you don’t have time for scratch or when you don’t have a stock of lemons in your refrigerator.  It has a little different flavor and is very good.

Keep a lemon syrup mix on hand for pancakes & desserts!

1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoons cornstarch
2/3 cup water
1 cup sugar
lemon zest from one lemon
4 tablespoons butter
1 drop Americolor Lemon Yellow Food Color Gel or equal

Mix the lemon juice and cornstarch in a saucepan with a whisk. Add the water and sugar and heat until bubbly and thick, stirring often. Remove from the heat and stir in the zest, butter, and food coloring.
