Apple Syrup

Brett's mom was making this syrup one day when we were over there swimming.  She told me to taste it and see if it tasted good.  I am always available to be a taste-tester, but I honestly didn't think I would love it because I don't usually like things that involve a warm fruity taste.  But I grabbed a spoon and gave it a try and holy cow it was so good I couldn't believe it.  Next thing you know, we are all gathered around the pot with our plastic spoons, inhaling this amazing syrup.  I came home and made it for BC and he loved it on his waffles.  Next time we're going to try it on ice cream.  Or maybe we'll combine ice cream, waffles, and the syrup.  The possibilities are endless!

1 cup sugar
2 Tbs. cornstarch
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 cups apple juice (I used Trader Joes)
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1/4 cup butter

*In a saucepan, warm the apple juice and then add the combined sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly.  Boil for one minute or until thick.  Remove the pan from the heat and add butter and lemon juice.  Stir until butter is melted.  Serve over pancakes, waffles, ice cream, cake, etc.
