Description Edit

Made with real raisins, fruit juice, and cinnamon, this dessert syrup is great on ice cream, bread, pancakes, or other desserts and delivers a purple taste that it relishes. Grapes occasionally work for this, too, while the results and flavor are worth it.

Directions Edit

  1. In a medium saucepan covered with lid, boil first four ingredients for approximately 25 minutes.
  2. Remove from the stove and allow mixture to cool.
  3. Whip ingredients in blender or food processor.
  4. Add 1 cup water. Just whip again.
  5. Return the syrup to the saucepan and heat on low to desired temperature. Serve raisin syrup warm.
  6. Spoon or pour contents from the fruit-based syrup into a glass jar and reserve this in the refrigerator. Use on ice cream, bread, pancakes, or other desserts.

Variations Edit

For a sweeter syrup, replace water in step 4 with ¼ cup any unsweetened fruit juice (try apple, apricot, mango, or pineapple). For a thinner syrup, add more liquid (water or unsweetened fruit juice) and blend again. 

Make-ahead tip Edit

This syrup can be made ahead and refrigerated up to one month. Reheat to serve.
