1 1/2 Cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup water
1/2 tsp maple flavoring ( optional ~ don't add until simmering)
Mix ingredients in sauce pan and simmer on medium heat. Simmer for five minutes, making sure all sugar is dissolved. To keep it from crystalizing more quickly do NOT stir while simmering. Remove from heat and allow to cool a bit before serving or storing.
