Chef Matthew Dillon of Sitka & Spruce in Seattle shared this one-ingredient recipe. If you've tried pomegranate molasses, you've got the idea behind cider molasses--an intense, concentrated version of the fresh juice, made by simply boiling it down. Drizzle it over roasted vegetables or salty cheese such as feta, use it as a last-minute glaze for grilled lamb chops or steak, or spoon it over yogurt and fruit for breakfast. Keeps up to 1 month, chilled; to use, bring to room temperature.


How to Make It

Boil cider in a large pot for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-high and boil, stirring often, until syrupy and reduced to 1 cup, 5 to 10 minutes (watch closely), remembering it will thicken as it cools.
