1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated (optional)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan. Simmer for 30-45 minutes, or until thickened, stirring occasionally. Cool and refrigerate in an airtight container. Lasts about two weeks.
