- Apple cider, plain or flavored
- Pour cider into a pot, and simmer until reduced to a quarter of its original volume. If you started with a quart, you’ll have around a cup. If you started with a gallon, you’ll have around a quart.
- Reduce the heat slightly, and continue simmering, watching the pot more carefully, until the liquid is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (approximately the consistency of maple syrup).
- Remove from heat. You can store this syrup in tupperware, or even better, in a recycled glass jar.
The syrup can be drizzled over pancakes or ice cream, used as a sauce for pork or chicken, or added to salad dressings. If you come up with other ways to use it, let us know!
