Apple Syrup

Fall and winter are wonderful times to find apple juice and ciders on great sale and a great time to make a batch of apple syrup. Apple syrup is wonderful on Dutch babies, pancakes and waffles, but it’s also a great glaze for ham and pork chops! Sweet and spicy with just a little kick and adding Ultra Gel keeps it thick and rich for weeks (if it lasts that long!).

Apple Syrup

4 cups apple cider

2 Tablespoons unsalted butter

1 Tablespoon brown sugar mixed with 2 Tablespoons Ultra Gel (or 1 Tablespoon Thick Gel)

2 teaspoon vanilla

½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Mix together brown sugar and Ultra Gel until well combined.

In a heavy sauce pan combine all ingredients, whisking until smooth. Bring to a boil. Turn down heat to medium and cook for 20-25 minutes until cider reduces and desired thickness is reached. Serve warm or pour into a container and refrigerate.
