Homemade Spice Syrup Recipe
This is made by bringing 50/50 caster sugar and water to a gentle boil with 10 cloves and a cinnamon stick, 1 star anise and a pinch of grated nutmeg per 1 pint. Stir until clear and reduce by 1/4 and then cool.
This syrup is very versatile and a great way to infuse a quick dash of Christmas-y flavour. It can also be used for baking and glazes as well as drinks.
