Capture the fantastic flavors of fall with Apple Cider Syrup! You are going to love it on everything from pancakes and waffles to ice cream and even apple pie!
After I had my third baby I hired a babysitter. Well, I guess you could call her a babysitter. I hired her to help out around the house. My third, and last, baby cried all day and all night. He NEVER quit crying. In addition to listening to him cry all night and day, I had to keep up with all my bookkeeping duties too. I was falling farther and farther behind and decided to hire her. She saved my life, and my third born’s life too! We loved her!
One thing I quickly noticed about her was that we shared something in common. A love for my homemade hot fudge sauce, which I always have in my fridge. It’s like a staple ! I’m pretty sure she ate some every time she came over. If she was still around babysitting I know she would start eating Apple Cider Syrup out of the jar too! I know because that’s what I want to do too!
Apple Cider Syrup is smooth and dreamy! Our family has been enjoying it on all kinds of different things. It would be heavenly served over Gingerbread then topped with whipped cream. It’s really yummy warmed up and drizzled over vanilla ice cream sprinkled with cinnamon. See, you can get carried away with all kinds of yummy ideas for this stuff. Or you could just eat it straight from the jar with a spoon! (I won’t tell if you won’t)
Of course, Apple Cider Syrup is great on pancakes. Add a little cinnamon and nutmeg to your favorite pancake recipe and it’s even better. The stuff settles perfectly into every butter filled square of waffles too! You could steam or saute sliced apples, toss it with Apple Cider Syrup and serve it over either pancakes, French toast, or waffles.
I’ve probably got the picture by now. Apple Cider Syrup is super duper versatile! It’s a quick and easy way to add the flavor of juicy fall apples to every day! You need to get this stuff in your fridge and then let your babysitter have some! Only if shes as good as mine was!
