Homemade Apple Cider Syrup

Apple Cider Syrup

I’ve had a curiosity for homemade maple syrup for a while now, but since my mood has been tending towards autumn overdrive lately, I decided that I’d like to try a spin on my favorite pancake accessory.

Apple Cider Syrup  Recipe

This apple cider pancake syrup is incredibly simple, impossible to mess up and absolutely delicious on a stack of pancakes or any of your favorite fall recipes that may require maple syrup. The flavor is subtly sweet, spiced perfectly with the richness of apple cider, whole cinnamon sticks and ground nutmeg. It would also make a nice gift for the holidays, I think!

Apple Cider Pancake Syrup

Make this as a treat for yourself some lazy autumn morning, or to share with a friends and family as a scrumptious, simple homemade gift alongside a jar of my even easier Homemade Pancake Mix. It’s the perfect special something to cozy up to while digging into a plate of pancakes, and just might make your mornings a little sweeter!

Homemade Apple Cider Syrup

Yield: Makes about ½ cup syrup

Ingredients:

1/4 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cornstarch

2/3 cup apple cider or juice

1 cinnamon stick (1-1/2 inches)

Dash ground nutmeg

Directions:

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and cider until smooth; add cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Discard cinnamon stick. Stir nutmeg into syrup. Pour into a bottle with a tight fitting lid and store in the refrigerator for up to two months.

Enjoy!

    Yum! I totally agree – this would be great in a little gift basket with some pancake mix, maybe a bag of coffee, and a fresh fruit for your neighbors to have on Christmas morning…

    Yummy! Q: Once you pour it in to the jars with a tightened lid do you store in the refrig right away? Need to know, especially if making for Xmas gifts. Thanks.

    Yes, I would recommend refrigerating it until giving it as a gift.

    I’d recommend using the whole cinnamon stick, since you’re infusing the syrup not seasoning it.

    This sounds great! Wonder if this would work with other juices? I may have to try some others, I don’t know why it wouldn’t!
