a little goes a long way


1/4 cup blackstrap molasses
1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 pinch ground nutmeg
1 dash ground cloves, optional
1/4 tsp vanilla extract


Combine molasses, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves with 1 cup water in medium saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium, and boil 15 minutes.

Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla extract.

Store in a jar or bowl.

To make a gingersnap latte, spoon 1 to 2 Tbsp of this syrup into a mug, add 6 ounces of coffee or 2 shots of espresso, and top with 1/4 cup frothed milk.

Make frothed milk without a fancy machine:
