Posts Tagged ‘Illovo Golden Syrup’
Ha! Anyone remember this, Lyles Golden Syrup? It is imported from England to the US like a few other things we can find here in the grocery stores that reminds us of South Africa. And yes, not our beloved Illovo Golden Syrup but better than nothing!
It can be found at our local Shoprite Grocery Stores and for South Africans abroad it is the closest to golden syrup that you will find here. (Unless you order it from the SA online grocery websites, which is great but, adding shipping costs to the price makes it a bit steep)!
It is great for use in cooking and baking but the absolute best is to eat it on your buttered bread or toast with either cheese or peanut butter. Yummy! Just like when I was growing up!
Of course I tried all the American syrups (great selection) but those are better for using on the American breakfast pancakes made here. They are of a much runnier (almost watery) consistency. Rightly so, it is so that it can soak into the pancakes from the top of the stack to the bottom!
I am not a great fan of the American pancakes and hardly ever eat them (big fan of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts though..Ha-ha..I gotta lay of the sugar, man)! I try to keep my yearly indulgences of these delicacies to a minimum of about once or twice; only as a dessert and most certainly not as breakfast!
