Mulled Cider Syrup
Courtesy of Marisa McClellan
• 1 gallon freshly pressed apple cider
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 5 whole cloves
• 1 cinnamon stick
• 1 star anise
Pour the apple cider into a large, wide pot. Add the sugar and spices, place over high heat and bring to a boil. Cook at a controlled boil for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until the gallon of cider has reduced to a thick, concentrated four cups.
To preserve the finished syrup for gift giving, strain out the spices and funnel the hot syrup into four clean, warm, half-pint mason jars. Wipe the rims of the jars, apply new lids, tighten rings to hold the lids in place, and process the jars in a boiling water bath canner for 10 minutes. When time is up, remove jars from the canning pot and let them cool on a folded kitchen towel.
Sealed jars are shelf stable for up to a year.
