Favorite Fall Food Recipe Swap

Life as Mom is hosting a recipe swap of fall foods.

Since we are now in apple cider season, I thought I'd share this syrup recipe we discovered a few years ago. Not to be confused with my unexpected invention of peach syrup, of course.

Apple Cider Syrup

2 cups apple cider
1 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Combine all ingredients together and heat until thickened.

Optional: Once thickened, add 1/4 cup butter. (I never do this)

I make a half recipe and cook it in the microwave. It mixes up and heats without overflowing in my 4-cup glass measuring cup.

I always intend to freeze some cider so we can have this more than seasonally but I've yet to actually do that. I guess that makes this a special autumn treat, which isn't all that bad an idea after all.


  1. What do you put this on???

  2. We use it on pancakes mostly and waffles if I'm ambitious enough to make them.

  3. This would be good on vnilla ice cream too! yum!


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
