Cinnamon Clove Syrup Notes

Adapted from the Bon Appetit Cookbook by Barbara Fairchid (2006)

Serves / Yields

about 1 cup

Preparation Instructions

Bring the first 6 ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to low and simmer until syrup is reduced to 3/4 cup, about 25 minutes. Cool, strain into a small bowl, add rum and stir to blend. Refrigerate until cold, at least one hour. (Syrup can be prepared 2 days in advance, keep refrigerated)

Helpful Hints

Serve over fresh melon or ice-cream for a cool dessert on a summer evening.

For vegan syrup, use beet sugar or evaporated cane juice.

The other commenter apparently doesn't understand what syrup is made out of. Of course it's sugar, you moron! In any case, this is quite nice.
