*Ensure containers used for simple syrups are sterilized (see Jam Making 101 for how to sterilize jars and/or bottles and tips for long-term storage) or freshly washed and dried before pouring in the cooled simple syrup.
*Simple syrup should be thrown out if it develops mould, cloudiness, or smells off.
*Simple syrups can be used to flavour hot or cold teas, coffees, steamed milk, sparkling water, and cocktails. Pour a small amount over ice cream, yogurt, or oatmeal. Moisten cake layers to prevent cakes from drying out and for added flavour.
*Redpath® Golden Yellow Sugar is great for flavouring anything where a subtle hint of caramel is desired while allowing delicate flavours to shine through (e.g. floral or citrus).
*Redpath® Dark Brown Sugar is ideal when a more pronounced caramel flavour is wanted; think vanilla, warm spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger), black tea, and coffee.
*Redpath® Demerara Style Sugar is excellent for flavouring desserts or drinks where the dominant flavour of the item can hold its own against the deep earthy, caramel flavour of this sugar and will be enhanced by these complex flavour notes (e.g. dark chocolate, coffee, rum, whisky or bourbon-based drinks or desserts).
