I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Apple Cider Syrup

This is good on any pancake or waffle, but it is amazing over  a pumpkin pancake or pumpkin waffles.  I think this would be good over caramel apple pie too or even pumpkin ice cream.  I could go on and on and on...
If you don't have whole cloves or a cinnamon stick, you can you ground.  You could also use a good apple juice instead of the apple cider.

(makes about 1 1/2 cups)

*1 1/2 cups apple cider
*2 tablespoons butter
*1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
*3/4 cup dark brown corn syrup
*1/2 of lemon, juiced
*1 cinnamon stick
*4 whole cloves
*1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

~In a medium saucepan, over medium heat bring all the ingredients to a full roiling boil.
~Reduce heat to low and cook for another 20-30 minutes, until mixture has reduced and starts to thicken, stirring often.
~Remove from heat and stir for 4-5 minutes.
~Allow mixture to stand at room temperature for 25-30 minutes.  Syrup will thicken up more at this time.
~Remove cinnamon stick and whole cloves and serve over pancakes.
