I decided to use the recipe from A Beautiful Mess which you can find here. They have all kinds of great recipes for every season.
You will need:
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon or 4-5 cinnamon sticks
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
a scant 1/2 teaspoon cloves
4 heaping tablespoons pumpkin puree
Combine all ingredients in a pot and stir over medium heat allowing the sugar time to dissolve. Let it continue to simmer for about 5-6 mins but be sure it doesn't start to boil. Strain the mixture to remove any unwanted chunks. Store in a container of your choosing. I put mine in a couple of mason jars and store it in the fridge. Its great to have on hand if I decide I want to add a bit of flavour to my morning latte.
If I really fill like going all out I add a bit of whip cream and some cinnamon sprinkled on top. Such a treat on a cold, dreary winter day.
