What is Golden Syrup? - Page 3

post #31 of 76

I see everyone has pretty well covered where to get Golden Syrup already , but please please please do not call them ANZAC Cookies , The proper name is ANZAC Biscuits or Bickies. 

 

 

Sorry if I have offended anyone .

As another Dinky di Aussie I have to say there are no nuts in Anzac biscuits, somebody posted a recipe which had coconut or nuts noooooo, it has to be desiccated coconut.  Do not substitute Corn Syrup for Golden Syrup it is not at all the same thing, Golden Syrup has a distinctive flavour that is the underlying flavour of these bickies.  Hope you all enjoy them they are extremely popular in my family.

Definitely no nuts or corn syrup in your ANZAC Bikkies!

 

:D

 

Golden syrup is delicious, we rarely had it as kids as my Mother was a no sugar fiend!  I remember being so jealous at a friend having a golden syrup sandwich at lunch one day when I was a little one!  LOL  Seemed like such wanton sugary goodness!!!

 

Golden syrup dumplings, Golden Syrup pudding,  great in all kinds of things.

 

Here is a very popular Australian cooking site's list of golden syrup recipes... http://www.taste.com.au/search-recipes/?q=golden+syrup&x=0&y=0

Thought I might share this very Australian fact about Golden Syrup, my Dad an 84 year old country boy calls Golden Syrup "Cockies Joy".  This name is  Aussie slang, back in the day the owner of a large country property would be called The Boss Cockie and Golden Syrup was a delicacy that the boss got to enjoy.  The word Cockie comes from the very loud and bossy Cockatoos (birds) that thrive in the Australian outback, and the loudest and most assertive would of course be The Boss of the flock.  Therefore, the owner of a property would be The Boss Cockie.  Nothing to do with making ANZACS but thought I would share :)

I recommend the Cornish fairings. Tastes like childhood.

Really impressed by this. If I get round to making it (doubtful, it's cheap as chips over here) I will let you know! http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ksIHlV9T17U&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DksIHlV9T17U

Ha ha this is funny! I'm a Brit so no Aussie lingo from me ya big galah (channelling Alf Stewart). Hokey pokey is regional name for honeycomb, boil up some golden syrup, whack in some bicarbonate of soda and delight in the excitement that ensues. Cornish fairings are gooey biscuits, awesome. My nan used to make them and they were bigger than my head. Awesome. You can make a quick syrup pudding in the microwave. Grease a plastic bowl, squirt hopeless amounts of syrup in the bottom, whip up a basic sponge (suggest the four threes method), whack it on top of the syrup. Cover with cling, put in the dinger for eight - ten on high or till done. Turn out of bowl, watch syrup ooze. Potentially have third degree burn from syrup depending on how impatient you are to dig in. Throw some bright yellow Birds on top and voila! That's how they do it oooooooopppppppp north in the UK!

Now the big question is what sort of ANZAC bickies do you prefer?  The hard crunchy ones or the soft chewy ones?  I love both.
