Golden syrup recipe

Golden syrup is one ingredient that I use a lot of in my baking, especially with the Christmas baking.  Unfortunately sometimes I do run out so I have to make do with making my own, although very delicious and is similar to Tate & Lyle golden syrup but I think getting the exact taste would be near on impossible.

The recipe below is enough for 2 to 3 jam jars depending on the size.

Ingredients for golden syrup.

200g white sugar

50ml water

1000g white sugar

600ml water

3 slices of lemon

Put the 200g sugar and 50g water into a saucepan and cook on a medium heat until the sugar caramelises and is a dark golden colour, keep your eye on this part as it is so easy to burn.

Add the rest of the sugar, lemon and water and stir just to mix.

Boil the syrup on a low heat so that it is just boiling for 45 – 50 minutes.  Do not stir while boiling just allow it to do its own thing.

Take off the heat and cool.  The syrup may look really runny at this point but it does thicken as it cools.

Pour into clean sterilised jars, do not put the lids on until cold.

The golden syrup stores really well for months, not that it lasts that long here.
