Arlene’s Maple Syrup

1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
1 cup of water
tiny sprinkle of salt
11/2 teaspoons maple flavoring
1/2 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
1 tsp. Sweetener of your choice, to taste

In at least a two cup glass measuring cup (or other microwave-safe glass container), mix water, salt, and arrowroot powder together till thoroughly blended.

Microwave about 1 minute, or until hot. Stir thoroughly (the arrowroot powder tends to settle at first like cornstarch does) Keep microwaving in one minute intervals, stirring after each, to keep the powder dissolved in the water. Do this until it boils. WATCH CAREFULLY, it can and will boil over!

Remove from microwave, stir again, and let it cool to room temperature. When cool, stir in flavourings and sweetener(s). Pour into a bottle (I used my empty Log Cabin bottle :-)) and refrigerate.

NOTES: This stays together quite well, but still benefits from a little shake before serving.
