How to Make Smoked Cane Syrup:

Collage making smoked simple syrup.

  •  We made a smoked simple syrup by combining the real cane syrup with water and a sprig of rosemary. We placed this on the grill with pecan chunks and let it simmer at about 200° for 15 minutes. The syrup gets smoky pretty quick and it is a great way to flavor the ham. 
  • Syrup can be also made on the stovetop but it will not have the smoke flavor. 
  • Store smoked cane syrup in refrigerator in an airtight container up to 3 weeks, freeze up to 6 months.
  • Try the smoked cane syrup as a substitute for simple syrup in your favorite Old Fashioned Cocktails.
