  • Heavy Bottom Pot
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Mason Jar with Lid


  • 3 2'' cinnamon sticks
  • 1 whole nutmeg seed
  • 2 inches fresh ginger, peeled
  • 2 tbs whole cloves
  • 3 whole cardamom pods
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 whole star anise
  • 4 whole black peppercorns
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups water


  • Measure out your spices and combine everything but the ginger.
  • Place the pot over a medium flame and warm the spice blend for about 1 minute until it becomes aromatic.
  • Add water and ginger. (You can also add 1 tbs orange zest at this point if you like.)
  • Bring to a light boil and add brown sugar. Stir to dissolve.
  • Return to a rolling boil and then immediately turn flame down to low.
  • Simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Cool, then strain. Store syrup in your mason jar, in the refrigerator. It is good for at least 3 months.
  • Use the syrup to flavor coffees and teas, as an ice cream topping, to flavor plain yogurt. You can also add a dash to squash soups, or coat grilled pumpkin with it. It is very versatile and addictive.
