Recipe For Simple Sugar Syrup

I can never assume that my readers know everything. It was a lesson I learnt from a professor at university. He told me that when answering an exam question I must assume that the person marking my paper knew nothing about the topic. This meant that my answers were quite long and precise but it also explains the high marks I received. Often when reading a recipe there is an assumption made that the person who has bought the book, or who is reading the blog post, will know what the chef or blogger means for each ingredient and every instruction. I hope I’ve never done that to you! So, when a recipe calls for a simple sugar syrup without saying how to make one some people may be left flummoxed. To make sure you never feel that way, here is my simple recipe.

is there an ingredient on my blog you want to know more about?

  1. Thank you for this, Tandy! Just the other day I discarded a recipe (can’t remember what for) because there was simple syrup among the ingredients and I didn’t feel like looking for the recipe 😉
    You are the best!

  2. you have a very valid point here. I once followed a recipe that required 2 grated courgettes. The problem was said courgettes were not the size we usually pick up little packets at the supermarket. Nope, instead I needed 2 almost as big as a cucumber!
