Cinnamon-Orange Syrup
The cinnamon has a tendency to settle to the bottom of the syrup as it sits, so make sure to stir before using. To make a soda, spoon 1/4 cup syrup into a tall glass. Add 2 ice cubes and 1/2 cup seltzer. Or stir a tablespoon or two of the syrup into hot or cold apple cider, or into iced tea. The syrup also makes a nice pancake topper.
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1-1/4 cups cold water
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 5 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1. In a small saucepan, stir together honey, water, and orange zest. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook uncovered for 10 minutes or until reduced to 1 cup. Cool to room temperature and strain.

2. Stir in cinnamon. Keep refrigerated until serving time. Stir syrup before using.
