Looking for a fun way to give your pancakes or coffee a fall twist? Then apple cider syrup is your answer. It is one of the easiest things I have ever made. It has 1 ingredient, apple cider. It can’t get easier than that right?
I wish I could take credit for this awesome syrup but really it was inspired by a dear friend of mine when we were living in Mexico. She made pumpkin pancakes drizzled with apple cider syrup for the kids one year. They were so amazing that I still remember how they tasted almost 10 years later!
This simple apple cider syrup is straight apple cider simmered for about two hours until it has reduced in size forming a concentrate. It is wonderful syrup but it is also a handy way to keep apple cider in the fridge when you don’t have a lot of shelf space. When you want a cup of cider you simply add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the syrup to a glass of water and there you go, apple cider! You can always add a dash of cinnamon for an extra special fall treat.
