Fruit Syrup

Fruit Syrup | My Kitchen AddictionsMy husband and I love to go to Branson, Missouri for a long weekend and stay at Bradford Inn Bed & Breakfast! Our family has been going there for the holidays for years.  It’s one of those traditions I hope our kids will talk about with their own children.  There is also a Bradford House where we have stayed many times.  Both places are owned by the same family and can be summed-up using two words – CHARMING AND DELICIOUS!  I give Bob and Cristy at Bradford House 100% credit for the recipe I’m sharing today.  If you happen to visit either place, make sure you stay for breakfast to enjoy this and other recipes prepared each morning at Bradford Inn and Bradford House.
