How to Make Homemade Pumpkin Spice Syrup


  1. Combine the sugar and water in a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Add the pumpkin, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger and whisk to incorporate. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens and reduces in volume, about 10 minutes more. You do not want the mixture to come to a boil.
  3. Turn off the heat and let the pumpkin spice syrup cool in the pan for about 15 minutes.
  4. If desired, strain the pumpkin spice syrup through a coffee filter or cheesecloth before transferring to a glass jar or other container with a lid. This requires patience because the liquid is thick and will take quite a while to strain.

    You can stash the syrup in the refrigerator for at least 1 month. And don’t forget, when using this pumpkin spice syrup, resist the temptation to dribble half the batch in your morning cup of coffee as it’s sweet and it’s potent.
