- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cinnamon sticks
Add all of the ingredients to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir until everything has combined and comes to a boil. Boils for 30 seconds and then remove from heat. and let it cool. Strain into your bottle of choice using a mesh strainer.
Allow the mixture to steep and cool for at least an hour. Remove the cinnamon sticks and strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer. Add to a sealable bottle or jar and store in the refrigerator for several weeks.
- This recipe yields about 2 cups of syrup but you could easily double the recipe if you wanted to make more or decide to make some to give as gifts.
- You can also use 1 tbsp ground cinnamon instead of the cinnamon sticks but I find that you get a thick gloopy substance that is fine but not ideal. If you do use ground cinnamon, make sure you strain the liquid with cheesecloth or a coffee filter before adding to your sealable bottle.
