Sitting On Top Of Our World inspired me in this post to step outside my square which is bottling fruit in plain water. They used a light syrup of raw sugar, rosewater and cinnamon and I have been licking my lips ever since.
After I made my last batch of preserved lemon peel I had some pure heavy syrup leftover in the fridge. I had used mostly muscovado sugar so it's dark and rich and almost caramelly with a marmalade taint. I used this to make a medium syrup 1/4 parts. I also added a cinnamon stick and Orange Flower water.
This would work well for peaches or apricots but I used it for......
Still bright beautiful orbs of ruby and I look forward to these when the summer has gone.
I hope Sitting On Top Of Our World's recipe or this one inspires you to try something different and a little more adventurous too.
