Christmas on the cheap Apple Syrup

Apple Syrup

1 cup unsweetened apple juice
1 cup sugar
Optional:1 cinnamon stick
Optional:1/4 cup apple liqueur

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil for about 15 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Remove from heat and pour, including the cinnamon stick, into a sterilized 12 oz bottle.  Cap tightly and refrigerate up to one week or freeze for later use. 

Great on pancakes but even better on vanilla ice cream. Yummy!

You can find syrup containers in thrift shops very easily which will save you some money.  Throw together some pancake mix, throw in a wooden spoon and then throw everything into a mixing bowl and you have a great gift for any pancake lover.  Mmmmm.
