Add all ingredients to a sauce pan (I like to corral the cloves and cinnamon stick in a spice bag or loose tea ball/bag). Bring to a boil (watch so it doesn’t boil over!) then reduce to a simmer. Stir frequently and simmer uncovered for about 15-20 minutes until desired thickness is attained. It will thicken more as it cools. Remove bag of spices and put in fridge until ready to serve. Freezes well too! Thanks to a playdate circa 1973 for this recipe our family has used ever since!
