   This was supposed to be a post for Apple Jelly, but the recipe did not quite work out as it should have. In the end the jelly never jelled so I was left with a slightly thick syrup. Being the notorious food hoarder that I am, there was no way I that I was going to dump out the mixture. This was my first time making jelly and I failed. This won’t be my last time though. I plan on doing lots of research the next time I make it. In fact, if you know how to make it, would you be so kind as to share some tips in the comment section?

What am I going to do with all of this tasty syrup now?

  • I bet it’ll taste fantastic drizzled over pancakes and French Toast.
  • You can also substitute the Spiced-Apple Syrup for most recipes that call for maple syrup like your favorite cake for a delicious twist to a plain-Jane cake.
  • Or how about drizzling it over an Apple Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting.
  • You could even swirl in a spoonful in your black tea.
  • Mmmm… Autumn Inspired Ice Cream Sundae with diced apples, pecans and then a dollop of syrup.

  

    Spiced Apple Syrup

    Ingredients

    • 2 lbs (1K) Apples
    • 14 Mandarin Oranges (or 4 large oranges)
    • 4 Cinnamon Sticks
    • 3 Star Anise
    • 1 t (5g) Freshly Ground Cloves
    • 2 t (10g) Chopped Ginger
    • 2 cups (500ml) Water
    • 1/2 Apple, chopped into small cubes

    Directions:

    1. Add all ingredients except diced apples and 1 star anise to a large pot. Bring to boil over medium heat, stirring frequently to combine all ingredients. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer for 90 minutes.
    2. Pour the mixture into a sieve lined with a muslin cloth or cheesecloth and hang over a bowl. Leave to drip for 2 hours or longer until no more drops come out of the cloth. Do not squeeze the mixture as this will lead to cloudy syrup.
    3. Put diced apples and remaining star anise (optional) in glass jar. Funnel syrup into the jar and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
