I wanted a good recipe for the famous Pumpkin Spice Syrup used in the yummy holiday season lattes found at most coffee stops.
I found one on Pinterest, which originated with Annie's Eats. I really like the ingredients, but found I wanted a spicier syrup, so I doubled the spices called for. I posted my revised recipe here today for:
Pumpkin Spice Latte Syrup
1-1/2 cup water
1-1/2 cup sugar
4 cinnamon sticks or 1/2 tsp. cinnamon powder
2 tsp. grated nutmeg
1 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cloves
6 Tbsp. pumpkin puree
Heat water and sugar in small saucepan, stirring as sugar dissolves. Whisk in the pumpkin, spices and add the cinnamon sticks.
Heat this mixture on med. low for 5 to 10 minutes, do not allow to come to a boil.
Cool and strain through sieve or cheesecloth into container. There will be some spice sediment in the liquid, that's ok. Using a funnel, pour mixture into a bottle and store in the refrigerator.
Add 3 tablespoons to cup of coffee, or more or less as desired.
