Boil up some cider to make Apple Cider Syrup! This simple recipe requires just one ingredient for a fall-inspired breakfast treat. We’ll go through a step by step guide for making apple syrup from cider, it’s very simple. Pour it over pancakes, add it to oatmeal, swirl into a latte…the possibilities are endless!
An Apple Cider Syrup Recipe you can make right at home
Apple cider is perhaps one of the most clear expressions of an autumn beverage. Whether warmed with spices or chilled with fresh fruit in sangria, it’s a classic fall ingredient with SO many uses. Today’s recipe is a more unique spin, but I promise just as delicious. With just 1 ingredient and 5 hours inactive cooking time, you can have an ideal edible gift idea this holiday season (not that theres anything wrong with granola). That’s right, we’re making apple cider syrup!
How to Make Boiled Apple Cider Syrup
- First, you’ll pour your cider into an extra large pot and bring it to a boil.
- Then, you’ll let the cider simmer for 3-6 hours (this can vary based on the pot you’re using).
- Once your syrup reaches a depth of about one fourth of an inch, it’s done! You’ll let it cool, decant into jars, and refrigerate for one to two weeks.
As I alluded to, boiled apple cider is really quite simple to make. This is only a “project” in the sense that it requires quite a bit of time for the water to cook away from the cider, leaving behind pure apple sugars. I like to reserve this for a time when I know I’ll be at home for a while. It actually is a perfect task for a not-so-busy work from home day. As a bonus, your entire kitchen will smell like a fall candle.
I appreciate this recipe’s versatility. Feel free to use apple cider syrup in any recipe that calls for maple syrup as a sweetener; it will help impart autumnal flavors. For these photos I used it for breakfast, but I could see if being just as delicious in a hot beverage or even mixed into salad dressing.
