Where to find Golden Syrup in Mtl?
I've been looking for that stuff all over the place and can't find it!
From what I've heard it comes in a tin and the texture is somewhere between maple syrup and molasses. Like thick honey, but with a taste much different because it's made from sugar cane.
I hope you can help me!
For Lyle's Golden Syrup, try calling Hogg Hardware in Westmount. They have a selection of British import groceries near the front cash, and I'm pretty sure I've seen Lyle's there.
4833 Sherbrooke W, Montreal, QC
Telephone : 514-934-4644
If you have a car, Bramble House in Pointe-Claire has a big British grocery section:
Bramble House 57 Donegani Avenue, Pointe-Claire (514) 630-6363
Further afield, there are also British-grocery places in Hudson and Knowlton, let me know if you want the details.
Finally, call me crazy, but I have a vague recollection of having seen Lyle's Golden Syrup at Loblaws, so you may even want to check there.
BTW - this is what you're looking for:
- in the picture, I'm pretty sure it's the stuff in the green can/jar
It's not Montreal, but England Hill in Knowlton has it as well. Being from the UK, we always used it on pancakes/crepes together with butter and lemon juice. Corn syrup is definitely not a substitute nor is maple syrup. Another fave place to use it is on a steamed suet pudding - haven't had one of those in years! My arteries are probably thanking me for that, though!
I also craved a steamed pudding last winter and made Nigella's recipe (in How to be a Domestic Goddess) which uses about 250mls of golden syrup mixed with lemon juice. Fantastic artery clogging stuff, but once a year it should be allowed though!
We also used to drizzle golden syrup over baked apples...

I picked up a jar about a year ago and as far as memory serves (which some days isn't very far at all, sadly), I'm pretty sure I picked it up at La Depense in the Jean Talon Market.
