Apple Cider Syrup

One of the best things of the holidays is spending time with family and friends.  In addition to that big Thanksgiving feast or the annual Christmas dinner, don’t forget about breakfast!  There’s nothing better than relaxing, hot breakfast with those you love.  {Notice I said relaxing . . . that means put all the craziness away for an hour and just enjoy the moment}.

This syrup will make any breakfast or brunch special.  I’m going to recommend you serve it over Pumpkin Waffles  for an incredible breakfast experience – but it’s also fabulous on french toast, pancakes- or it can even make frozen waffles pretty amazing.



I love that this syrup is so easy to make- just combine apple cider and maple syrup and let it reduce into a wonderful combination of flavor to add a little something special to breakfast {or dinner as we sometimes prefer}.  In fact it’s good enough you could fill a small mason jar with syrup, add a ribbon, and there you have a fast and easy holiday gift from the kitchen!


Apple Cider Syrup

1 cup apple cider
1 cup maple syrup

Bring to a boil in a small sauce pan, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes or until the syrup is thickened and reduced by almost half.

*This means you’ll get about 1 to 1 1/4 cup of syrup, so you can make more or less according to your needs – just combine equal parts cider and syrup.

Note:  You can just use the grocery store maple-flavored syrup- no need for the expensive real maple (unless you want it extra special).  Once the syrup combines with the cider it is full of flavor!
