If you're wondering what to take to Thanksgiving that's not so typical (you want to be different and innovative), take this! It's perfect for the family to enjoy and to impress the boyfriend's parents.

So the team over at Cecil & Merl wanted to give you a little sneak peek on what goes into making a syrup and how you can make it at home.  Remember to do your math and take it slow. You'll be bottling your own Fall Spice Syrup in no time!
