This unique syrup combines the rich flavours of vanilla and fig with some bright orange peel.
Peel half of an Orange and set this aside
In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients (excluding peel) and bring to a boil
Once it starts to boil, immediately bring it down to a simmer and add the orange peel
Allow this to simmer for 10 minutes before straining through a fine mesh strainer
Let this reach room temperature before storing into the fridge
This recipe yielded 2/3 cups of syrup. This is good for at least 10 of the Old Fashioned Recipe found here, and can yield in the fridge for a maximum of 2 weeks.
