1 1/2 cups of water
1/4 cup + 1TB of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2/3 cup of canned pumpkin
pinch of salt
- In a small saucepan, pour in the water and brown sugar and heat on medium-high, stirring until the sugar is dissolved (about 2-3 minutes).
- Add the remaining ingredients, stir well and bring the mixture to a light boil. Once it reaches a boil, immediately reduce heat to medium so that it reaches a light simmer. Stir frequently for about 5-7 minutes.
- Take the saucepan off the stove and let cool for about 5-10 minutes.
- If you want a very smooth syrup that isn’t grainy, strain it over a bowl or large measuring cup using cheesecloth, a nut bag, fine mesh strainer, or whatever you have on hand. Squeeze out as much juice as you can. Discard the solids.
- Put the syrup into a container in the fridge and use as needed. This should keep in the fridge for 1 week.
FOR A PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE (1 serving): Mix 2-3 tablespoons of pumpkin spice syrup with 1 shot of espresso or 1/4 cup brewed hot coffee and 1 cup of steamed/frothed milk (2% or higher works better) and top with whip cream, cinnamon, and flaky salt! YUM!!! For a kid-friendly version, just omit the coffee!!
**I heat the milk in the microwave for 30 seconds and then froth it with a handheld frothing wand**
The dry spice mixture can be used in pumpkin pie!
