Cara Cara Orange Syrup
An amazing alternative to bottled, plain Jane, store bought syrup.
- Juice of 3 Cara Cara navel oranges (about 1 cup)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon or pumpkin spice
In a small saucepan, combine orange juice and butter. Bring to a boil.
Add sugar and cook over medium heat until completely dissolved, stirring frequently, about 1-2 minutes.
Stir in vanilla and cinnamon (or pumpkin) until well blended.
Remove from the heat and let cool. The syrup will thicken as it cools.
Makes 8-10 servings.
Tip: For a thicker syrup, use more sugar; for thinner, use less.
