Homemade Maple Syrup!

So this is Dolphin Girl :D and this is a recipe for SYRUP!!! it is AMAZING!!! So I was only able to get 2 pics of it. Anyway where I live syrup is VERY expensive (just for an update I am living in Shanghai China) so we were finally able to get the recipe from some friends of ours, and here it is:

Homemade Maple Syrup.
1cup white Sugar,
1cup Brown sugar,
1cup Water,
and some maple flavoring (I don't know how much sorry :(  )

The syrup in the bottle
The syrup in the pot, some nice dark goodness :D
Then you mix the sugars and water on the stove, just until it bubbles then add the maple flavoring. Then you wait for it to cool just enough to not burn yourself and still have it a little bit warm. Then there you go :) Some very good Maple Syrup.
