Pumpkin Spice Syrup

This is fall flavored syrup.
Just trust me on this.
I don't lie about fall.
Or syrup.

As Buddy the elf once said,
"We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup."
Of course I'm not an elf but I do have an affinity for elf culture,
so I take my syrup seriously.

This syrup is really yummy.
It's intended to be used to make the infamous pumpkin spice latte but I've only used it on pancakes so far.

It was a little thinner than regular pancake syrup but it still worked well and tasted great.

This whole straining thing didn't work for me. I cooked the mixture too long which made it too thick.

The cloves and nutmeg are definitely the dominate taste so feel free to adjust the spices to your preference.

Happy Fall!
