Cherry Maple Syrup

Geoff Keating - Portland, ME


Using a microplane, remove 1 teaspoon of zest from the orange and 1 teaspoon of zest from the lemon and set aside. Then juice the oranges and lemons and set aside.

In a heavy saucepan, blend citrus juices, zest, maple syrup, brown sugar, and honey. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often. Lower heat and simmer about 10 minutes. Stir in the chopped dried cherries, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Simmer an additional 2 minutes.

Cherry maple syrup is great on pancakes, waffles, biscuits, and French toast.

Note: If you prefer a smooth syrup, run it through a strainer to remove the cherry chunks.

Yield: About 2 cups


  • 2 oranges
  • 2 lemons
  • 1-1/2 cups maple syrup
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey (preferably orange blossom honey)
  • 1 cup dried cherries, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-grated nutmeg
