How to Make Golden Syrup

Save

Golden syrup is a thick, honey-colored syrup used in a variety of recipes and desserts, or as a topping for pancakes or ice cream. Golden syrup is a favorite in the U.K. and Australia, but if you live across the pond, you may have a difficult time locating it. If you have a hankering for the sweet treat, you can make a very acceptable imitation in your own kitchen.

Things You'll Need

  • Heavy saucepan
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 tsp. water
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2/3 cup light corn syrup
  • Wooden spoon
  • Glass or plastic container
  • Pour the white sugar in a heavy saucepan. Jiggle the pan so the sugar will be evenly distributed over the bottom.

  • Mix the water and vinegar in a small mixing bowl. Sprinkle the mixture over the sugar.

  • Cook the mixture over low heat for five minutes. Even though it may be tempting, don't stir.

  • Turn the heat up to medium and continue to cook the mixture for about five minutes, without stirring. Remove the pan from the heat when the mixture turns a golden color.

  • Add the light corn syrup and let the mixture sit for about 3 minutes. When it stops bubbling, stir it thoroughly with a wooden spoon.

  • Let the golden syrup cool slightly and then pour it into a glass or plastic container. Seal it tightly and store it at room temperature. The syrup will last for 2 to 3 months.
