A spicy syrup made with apple juice and brown sugar — not too sweet but full of flavor! Yield:
6 1/2 cups of syrup Ingredients:
6 cups apple juice (we use a can of concentrate and add water)
1 2/3 cup brown sugar (use more if you like a very sweet syrup)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
5 small apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (optional)
1/2 cup clear jel/Sure Gel OR cornstarch Instructions:
1. Combine 5 cups of the apple juice with the sugar, spices, and apples (if using). Bring to a boil. (If using apples, simmer until apples are tender.)
2. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1 cup apple juice with the cornstarch, stirring or whisking to remove lumps.
3. Add cornstarch mixture to boiling mixture and stir for a few minutes until mixture bubbles and thickens.
4. Serve hot over pancakes, waffles, or French toast!
