Cinnamon Simple Syrup with Cinnamon Stick

Cinnamon simple syrup with cinnamon sticks – Making a delicious cinnamon syrup (no clumps!) at home is super easy! 

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar (or white sugar) (See NOTE)
  • 1 to 2 cinnamon sticks 

Instructions

  1. Bring the cinnamon pieces and water to a boil. You can break your cinnamon sticks into large pieces. This is optional but it helps extract the stronger cinnamon flavor. 
  2. Once it comes to a boil, add the sugar. Stir to dissolve. 
  3. Lower the heat to simmer and let it steep for 10 minutes. 
  4. Strain the syrup and let it cool.
  5. Store in the refrigerator (for up to a month) and enjoy!

Notes

  • If you are using Ceylon cinnamon, use up to 3 sticks. If you are using Cassia cinnamon, use 1 to 2 sticks. 
  • You don’t have to break your cinnamon sticks into large pieces. I wanted to extract a stronger flavor but it’s optional. 
  • If you are using Ceylon cinnamon, use white sugar.
  • If you enjoy a hint of molasses flavor, use brown sugar instead of white sugar. 
  • If you want your syrup to be not as dark in color as mine, use white sugar instead of brown sugar.
