Honey, water, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, allspice, peppercorns and nutmeg are simmered together to create this wonderful ginger syrup. Use on cakes, ice cream, in coffee or whatever you fancy.
Loverly in coffee. Will make again. - 16 Sep 2010
Update: I have made this recipe several times now. Last year I bottled this and gave it away as Xmas presents. I started adding a tablespoon of Brandy to it. It is soooo good! Highly reccommended! Original review: I saw this recipe on the community reviews and just had to try it! It is simmering on the stove and making the house smell so good! So for smell alone, I am rating it 5 stars. Will update about taste. Thanks for the great autumn recipe! Taste update: This was great! I poured this into an afternoon cup of coffee. Wow! A taste sensation! Try this, you won't be disappointed! - 18 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was ok for a homemade syrup. I didn't think there was enough "gingerbread" flavor in the beginning so I crushed the ginger a little and that help release more flavor. I left the ginger, cinnamon and cloves in the syrup and put it in a mason jar. I had to used ground allspice, which was fine. We used this in our coffee along with some half and half and it made a nice treat. Thanks for sharing. - 21 Nov 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
