Cinnamon Clove Syrup Recipe

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)

Yield: about 1 cup
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.

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.
