does this taste good? anybody?

I can't wait to make and consume this syrup, it sounds delicious!!

the syrup is amazing! i was surprised how sweet it comes out and you don't add additional sugar. i used the simply brand simply apple juice for this. i think i want to even try the syrup as a sweetener as it suggest.

5 grams of fat? From what?

Do you think the syrup would keep for a bit in the fridge?

I made this before, and it was absolutely delicious! I plan on making it again when my family gets together this summer.
