For this whiskey maple syrup recipe gift in a jar there are two potential options for jar gifts that fit the size of the recipe:
This quick and easy recipe takes its inspiration from whiskey barrel aged maple syrup I’ve purchased in the past. I wanted to create something similar at home for a lot less. This make at home version costs less than half of what I was paying for store bought cask aged syrup. If you really want that oak, cask flavoring for yourself you can purchase a Mini Oak Cask Barrel to age/store your syrup in.
Important Notes About this Recipe:
This recipe makes just over a cup of finished syrup. The amount varies a little with the amount of cooking time. If you want a rich flavored syrup that does not have a STRONG whiskey flavor I recommend that you simmer the syrup for 15 minutes.
If you want a STRONG whiskey flavor then I recommend that you simmer the syrup for only 10 mins. Be sure to take some tastes along the way and stop the cooking process when you feel you’ve reached the desired flavor. I wouldn’t exceed 15 minutes of cooking time because you will cook off too much of the whiskey.
Okay, gather up your supplies & ingredients and lets get started!
