This is wonderful to have on hand during the winter months. Very easy to prepare and makes any waffle, pancake, or slice of french toast extra special. It's from "Creme de Colorado", one of my favorite junior league cookbooks.


  1. In medium saucepan, combine juice, cranberries, cinnamon, and cloves, and simmer 15 minutes or until cranberries pop.
  2. Add maple syrup, and simmer for an additional five minutes.
  3. Serve warm.

Indeed very good to have on hand. I blended it (handblender) for a smoother sauce/syrup. Delicious over ice-cream, pancakes and (that is what I have tried it with so far). Will even try to use in a cake by substituting half of the amount of sugar with this syrup.
