HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN GOLDEN SYRUP




Ingredients

3 Tbsp water

1/2 cup [115 g] sugar

1 1/4 cup [310 ml] boiling water

2 1/2 [500g] cups sugar

1 lemon slice

Instructions

Pour 3 Tbsp water and 1/2 cup sugar into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer (uncovered) over medium-low to medium heat.

Once the mixture turns a caramel color, slowly and very carefully add 1 1/4 cups boiling water (I pre-heated the water my countertop hot water kettle).

Add 2 1/2 cups sugar and bring to a low simmer.

Add a slice of lemon. The lemon will keep the syrup from crystalizing as it simmers. Turn the heat down to low and let the syrup simmer uncovered for about 45 minutes.

Remove the candied lemon slice. Let syrup cool down for a few minutes before pouring it into a sterilized glass jar.
