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.
