The fall season brings nothing but yummy goodness to your breakfast table. Wouldn’t you agree? Especially when you have my homemade Apple Cider Syrup to look forward too. I can’t get enough of the sweet taste of Apple Cider Syrup on my harvest pancakes. It’s so good!
The first time that I tried Apple Cider Syrup was in Maine many years ago. My family and I stopped in a local shop and there it was just staring at me. -And of course, I had to purchase a bottle to bring home. I had no idea how easy it was to actually make Apple Cider Syrup at home until recently. I’ve been always loved maple syrup on my pancakes, waffles, biscuits, and of course, other desserts but Apple Cider Syrup brings out the taste of this fun fall season.
Over this past weekend, I decided to make Apple Cider Syrup with my harvest pancakes that my family was insisting that I make for them. It’s the weekend -Plus fall recipes are simply the best! So how could I say no?
Apple Cider Syrup is extremely easy to make. It’s effortless. This recipe calls for only a few ingredients which many of them you might already have.
The key ingredient that’s a must to have is freshly chilled Apple Cider. Freshly chilled Apple Cider can be found in most grocery stores near the refrigerated juice aisle. Remember, it’s an important ingredient, so make sure you check out the expiration date to get the freshest Apple Cider available. If you’re not a fan of Apple Cider, chilled apple juice would work as well.
