I am interested in making the Cinnamon, Clove Syrup. Your recipe sounds wonderful, especially for ice cream. The ingredient list does not list rum but the directions do mention rum. If I need rum, how much? What kind, meaning dark, golden, etc. I am looking forward to your response.
Thank you. I know this is not a review, but I am hoping to review as soon as I make it.

for CANCER….Read the book “Primal Body, Primal Mind,”
and YOU decide.

This is a simple syrup and it’s used a little at a time as a sweetener for things such as lemonade or adding to a cocktail, iced tea, etc. to add another interesting layer of flavor.

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.
