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.
APPLE CIDER SYRUP
(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.
