  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 whole black peppercorns
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick

  • 1 strip (2 1/2 inches) orange zest


  1. Bring sugar, 1 cup water, the peppercorns, cloves, cinnamon stick, star anise, and zest to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. For milder flavor, remove star anise, and discard; simmer 10 minutes more. Remove from heat. Let cool completely. Pour through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids.

Syrup can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to 1 month.
