The combined flavor of pumpkin puree, mixed with vanilla extract and pumpkin spice will remind you of autumn days strolling through your favorite pumpkin patches and apple orchards

To make the syrup, start by mixing all of your ingredients together in a pan and sert over medium heat and cook it for about one hour, stirring occasionally. Everyone's stove tops are different, so if you find that your syrup is too thick, try adding some water and cranking the heat up a bit. 

Once it's done, let it cool down for another hour and then strain it. Add the syrup to your cofee, waffles or any of our tasty recipes made with canned pumpkin.
