vailima1, Mar 25, 5:48am
I have atourist rental property and am surprised on the amount of left over golden syrup is left behind by tourists.

Any ideas what people use it for?

on crumpets, pancakes, pikelets, bread and/or toast, waffles, porridge, as an icecream topping... . . :-))

Um, smearing over one another and ... you know, good clean adult holiday fun!

Probably all of the above.

Cheaper than Maple Syrup and tastes better than synthetic maple syrup I think.

If they're from the USA, it doesn't exist there, and maybe they think it's an exciting new local product to try... . and then are disappointed? ?

caramel sauce, add to boiling water when cooking corned beef, on toast/crumpets or making hokey pokey.

My scottish friend goes through tons of the stuff, She has it on toast twice a day.

Early last century, country folk used to refer to golden syrup as 'cocky's joy' - I think back then it came in big blue tins three or four times the size of the current little squat tin. Somebody must have been doing something useful with it...

That wasn't molt was it?

I remember having a tablespoon of that every day! ! And mes not THAT old !

Anyone else had that as a kid?

my dad used to put treacle on his porridge instead of golden syrup. he said it was far tastier.

Yep, teaspoon of Malt every morning before school- loved that stuff. They still sell it, Maltexo or something at the supermarket in the health aisle, alongside the milk biscuits. Might pick some up, would be nice to have Malt milkshakes-yum!

A lot of recipes for fruit cakes, chocolate cakes , and fruit loaves have golden syrup in the recipe... . helps make a nice moist cake... . . a Tbs in with vinegar added to cooking corned beef or other pickled meat improves the flavour... ... M.

It's awesome with french vanilla ice cream! !

I buy malt occasionally - we don't like the one with orange added. . the good ole malt that tastes the same as when we were kids is the one we like. . it's usually sold in the health section, often on the bottom shelf near vitamin supplement tablets.

As children, we would write our names on our porridge with a tall trickle of golden syrup from the spoon :)

Golden syrup can also be used to replace eggs in some baking of cakes, biscuits, slices etc.
