inspissate

To undergo thickening or cause to thicken, as by boiling or evaporation; condense.

i found inspissate in a journal article i was reading at work. i have to stare at the word a long time to pronounce it.

The coffee had sat so long in his cup that it inspissated and grew a thick, green mold on top.
