I was late to join the pumpkin spice bandwagon but finally last year, I tried it and of course became obsessed. It’s that time of year again where Pumpkin Spice is everywhere and unlike past years, this year I am embracing it with open arms!
I love take out lattes from my local coffee shop but I also love making my own lattes at home. There is nothing like sitting at home, cozy while sipping a pumpkin spiced latte. After making this recipe I realized why it’s so delicious, there is quite a bit of sugar in it. :D But hey, it’s only a seasonal treat so who cares!
This recipe is insanely easy, with easy to acquire ingredients, it’s delicious and has a decent fridge life. Mine lasted two weeks before I used it all but you can definitely keep it longer if you refrigerate it.
What you’ll need:
Cheesecloth or a mesh strainer
1 1/2 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of sugar
2 tbsp of pumpkin purée
4 sticks of cinnamon
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 tsp Cloves
1/2 tsp Ginger
In a sauce pan over medium heat add water and sugar.
Bring to a boil.
Lower the heat and let simmer until all of the sugar is dissolved.
Add in pumpkin purée and spices.
Let simmer on med/low heat for 7-8 minutes. DO NO BRING TO A BOIL.
Remove from heat.
Pour syrup through the mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
Allow syrup to completely cool.
Store in airtight container in fridge for up to 2 weeks.
