Directions To Make Spicy Maple Syrup

Whether you want to add a little heat to your morning pancakes or create the perfect glaze for your turkey this Thanksgiving, there are many ways to make spicy maple syrup. Here are four ways that will help you create the perfect blend of savory and sweet:

Whisk Together All The Ingredients In A Saucepan

Depending on your preferences and tastes, this can include anything from cinnamon and chili powder to ginger and cayenne pepper. Just be sure to use a small amount of each spice that goes a long way with these recipes.

Put The Sauce Pan On Medium-Low Heat (Stir Often)

Be sure not to let the mixture boil, as this can cause it to lose flavor and consistency. Continuous stirring is necessary to ensure the spices evenly distribute throughout the syrup. The heat should be medium, as the high heat may also cause the syrup to burn or lose its flavor.

Set Aside And Let It Cool

After the mixture has simmered for a few minutes, take it off of the heat and let it cool. This will help it to thicken up and become more syrup-like in consistency.

Transfer It To An Airtight Jar And Serve!

After letting it cool slightly, transfer the syrup into an airtight jar or container and store it in the refrigerator until ready to use. This will help prevent premature spoiling or molding from excess moisture once chilled.
