Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
660g sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1-2 tablespoons rosewater or orange flower water

Method

  1. Dissolve the sugar in 625 ml cold water in a heavy-based saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Bring to the boil and add the lemon juice. Allow to boil over medium heat, without stirring, for 12 minutes, or until the syrup is thick when tested on a cold saucer.
  2. Add rosewater or orange flower water to taste, then boil for 1 minute longer. When cool, the consistency should be similar to thin honey.
  3. Strain, cool and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator until required.

Note

  • Once the syrup has begun to boil, do not stir it again, as this makes the syrup cloudy.
