Homade syrup using turbinado sugar?

Anyone ever do this? How do you make it? Is it good on pancakes. I typically use maple syrup. I don't like the regular syrups with Chemicals and HFCS. Wouldn't mind making my own though to save money. Maple syrup is so expensive!

Re: Homade syrup using turbinado sugar?

This isn't just plain syrup, but we make an apple/sugar/cinnamon concoction that we eat on pancakes. It makes it's own syrup, it's yummy, and much cheaper than maple syrup.

In a frying pan put a bunch of cut up apples, about a 1/4 C butter, some sucanat/turbinado/whatever, and some cinnamon. Cook it until the apples soften up and the butter/sugar make a nice syrup. It's quite delicious.
