What is Golden Syrup? - Page 4

post #46 of 76
Golden syrup also comes in plastic squeeze bottles so much hander and less messy then the tin !! Cos it's so thick and sticky if you lightly grease your measuring spoon it should come of easier. And it's lovely in gingerbread men icon_biggrin.gif

Sticky ones. And the squeezy bottle is awesome.

Thank you - I think I understand much more now.  I will look for it in the English sections of stores.  I am curious about the distinctive flavor as the ingredients are fairly simple - almost like the early stages of caramel.  Yes/No?

Either way, I will look for it.

I must admit I love both too.  I think I am going to make some this weekend after visiting this thread all weekend. I can take some to our Cake Club workshop on Monday.

Mmmmmm I love the soft chewy ones. A tip for those who like the different types, use a bit more golden syrup for hard, crunchy ones and less for soft, chewy ones. 

 

Also don't overdo the bicarb soda or they taste awful!

Wow, I was so amazed when I saw this recipe. My mum used to make this almost 50 years ago, her recipe was called oat crunchies and instead of butter she used clarified butter. When I make them, they disappear within hours.The taste is not as good if you use corn syrup. Golden syrup has a different delicious flavor.

In canada golden syrup is available at No Frills.

My inlaws  regularly travel to France (from the UK) and always have to take tins of G Syrup for their French friends!  Talk about small scale exporting :lol:

I just wanted to pop in and let anyone in the US know the Lyle's Golden Syrup is available at Amazon in case you can't find it locally.

My nan used to make them and they were bigger than my head. Awesome. You can make a quick syrup pudding in the microwave. Grease a plastic bowl, squirt hopeless amounts of syrup in the bottom, whip up a basic sponge (suggest the four threes method), whack it on top of the syrup. Cover with cling, put in the dinger for eight - ten on high or till done. Turn out of bowl, watch syrup ooze. Potentially have third degree burn from syrup depending on how impatient you are to dig in. Throw some bright yellow Birds on top and voila! That's how they do it oooooooopppppppp north in the UK!

I'm from 't up north and I've never had this! We had treacle pudding but not GS. My mum used to steam it in a pan back in those days though.

Never heard of hokey pokey (as a name, I know honeycomb) or Cornish fairings though.

Treacle and golden syrup are the same thing. Black treacle/ molasses is different.

Definately NOT the same thing here in Australia
