Appelstroop (Apple Syrup)
A traditional Dutch syrup used in a similar way to Golden syrup and Maple syrup.
Total Time: 1-2 Hours
Yield: approx. 1 1/2 cups
- 1 1/2 l apple juice
- 1 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 star anise
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Add the apple juice, lemon juice, star anise, and cinnamon to a saucepan. Boil on a medium-high heat and reduce down to 1/4 of the original volume, stirring occasionally. This can take an hour or two.
- Remove the star anise pods. Now add the sugar and boil until the sugar is dissolved. The apple syrup is ready when it coats the back of a spoon but still drips off like honey.
- Pour the apple syrup into a clean jam jar. Apple syrup keeps for quite a long time.
Note: If the apple syrup has cooked for too long it may go hard in the jar. If this happens, simply microwave it until it becomes runny again. Therefore, its probably best to keep it in a container that can be microwaved.
