Pumpkin Spice Syrup

I promise this is the last pumpkin recipe of the season! And it's a good one!

The day Pumpkin Spice Lattes arrive at Starbucks is pretty amusing on social media. My Instagram and Facebook feed both fill with excitement with people picking up their first of the season. This year, they rolled out a few days prior to September and I just couldn't bring myself to order one in August. September 1? Not a problem :)

Unfortunately, with the price creeping upwards each year, not many of us can pick one up whenever the mood strikes us. Have no fear! In 15 minutes or so, you can whip up a jar of pumpkin spice syrup to pour into your favorite cup of joe or latte of choice at home.

Have some extra pumpkin hanging out in the fridge? This is the perfect way to use it up!

Pumpkin Spice Syrup
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 cinnamon sticks
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons pure pumpkin purée

In a small pot over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the water. Once the sugar is dissolved, add the cinnamon sticks and remaining ingredients. Allow to cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring frequently, but don't let it boil. 

Let cool 5-10 minutes. Strain the mixture using a cheesecloth or a tea towel. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
