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!

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.

If you really want to make sure that the gingerbread stands out, try (1) a rough chop of the ginger in food processor and (2) soaking the chopped ginger in the water for a few hours before making (3) increasing the amount of ginger you use. This syrup doesn't last long in my house, being used for everything from coffee to over fresh apples. It keeps well and makes a great host/hostess gift. CHEERS!
