Pumpkin Spice Simple Syrup

October 13, 2016

This season I have been disappointed in the pumpkin spice flavors. When I taste pumpkin spice I want it to taste like pumkin pie! Or at the very least pumkin bread. But alas the powers that be can not give me my heart’s desire. So I make my own.

Recipe:

2 cups water

2 cups sugar

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1 cinnamon stick

1 cube of fresh giner (about 1/2 in)

1/4 – 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg (go with fresh if you can) 

Add spices and water in a small pot. Bring it to a boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes. You want the liquid to reduce to 1 cup of water. Take off the heat and strain out the spices. Add the water back into the pot, add sugar and the pumpkin. Bring to a boil while whisking in the pumpkin. Lower the heat and cook until the sugar is completely disolved. Keep stiring during this time. It will take about 3-5 minutes. Place pumkin spice simple syrup in containers and let it cool. This will keep in the fridge for a couple of weeks. 

Take the basic simple syrup ratio of 1 cup water to two cups sugar and you can make any flavor you want. Enjoy!
