Golden syrup works Celia. Just send me a few cans for the tip!!


I even looked into the postage rates Babs - but really not cost effective. You need someone coming over in holiday to pack a can or two!

Yay! Now I have the full picture Benzine, thanks. I'm in a sugar beet area here, but know surprisingly little about the process.

Thanks for the peroxide tip - nothing worse than smelly mould growth!

Thanks Min - treacle is in my vocabulary and sits alongside Golden Syrup in the supermarket!

Thanks Benzine. I'll try it next time the need arises. I've just been intrigued by the cultural differences his has given rise to!

TJR - you're trying so hard here .... Molasses?? Now I've heard the word but wouldn't have a clue as to its form, use, or supermarket aisle. I think I'm living in a parallel universe here.

Joel / Ann (Chilly) - is it me?????

Thanks TJR - sugar water I get.
Nonetheless even the words 'some cheap syrup' doesn't conjour up a range of products I might see in the supermarkets here - it's not something I've ever had on my shopping list. However, I don't bake cakes and biscuits, don't buy/eat waffles and my pancakes once a year on Shrove Tuesday, are adorned with lemon juice and sugar, so perhaps it's not surprising I don't buy it. I understand that Maple Syrup has found its way across the water and has become a popular accompaniment to pancakes - I did come across this in my local supermarket, when looking.

All this from someone who admittedly has a sweet tooth can you believe!?
