Editorial Notes

The ingredient tips, suggestions, variations, facts, questions and answers below are not edits to the original author's recipe. They are not meant to imply any change would improve the recipe.

  • Choose an apple cider with a strong apple flavor for the best results.
  • Unsalted butter should be used in this recipe to control the amount of salt.

  • Instead of sugar, use honey. The benefit of this substitution is that honey is a natural sweetener, and it adds a slightly different flavor to the syrup than sugar.
  • Instead of lemon juice, use orange juice. The benefit of this substitution is that orange juice adds a sweeter and less acidic flavor than lemon juice, which can be too tart for some people.

Maple Syrup Variation Replace the sugar with ¾ cup of maple syrup. Reduce the apple cider to ¾ cup and increase the lemon juice to 2 tablespoons. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until mixture has reduced by one-half. Remove from heat and stir in butter until melted. Keep warm.

Oh, my goodness!!! I had some apple cider that needed to be used, so I chose this simple recipe. But boy, it tastes like a million bucks! It's sweet, apple-y, buttery, and DELICIOUS! Had this over oatmeal with some chopped apples and can't wait to have it on waffles. It's a most worthy indulgence! UPDATE: Had this over Dienia's Cinnamon Apple Waffles this morning and this syrup just blew my mind. So very good!!!
