|I would have to say, that other than chocolate, my favorite baking flavor year around, is peppermint.|
|Tonight I tried something I read about, Peppermint Syrup. It was so easy and it is SO delicious! Take two cups sugar, one cup water, and six large broken up candy canes. (I used seven and its a little strong - I like it, but six would probably be sufficient) Stir till it comes to a boil, and stir for two minutes while boiling. No longer. As you can see the candy canes didn't completely melt, but I'm guessing the first person that walks in the door tonight will scoop them out and that will be that!|
I can imagine this syrup will be fantastic on ice cream, and definitely in hot chocolate, and even coffee. So, if you need a quick treat, try this one!
Meanwhile, something very exciting happened yesterday! I'm afraid my lips are sealed for at least another week! We'll post about it as soon as we get permission!
Have a great evening enjoying all the wonderful flavors that God has given us! He wouldn't have had to give us flavors you know, but I'm so glad He did!
