finding "golden syrup" in N. Westchester

Have heard that this specialty item used in Australia and Britain has no real substitute. Tried to find it at Zeytinia in Croton, but they didn't have it. Anyone know who might carry this?

      It's "similar" to corn syrup, used in baking typically. It's made from cane sugar instead of corn though. Apparently has a "better" flavor than corn syrup.

    2. I've seen it at the Whole Foods in Westport. Is there a WF near you?

        nah, we're "the boonies" up here near peekskill. Nearest WF is white plains, and I hate white plains.

      2. You're looking for Lyle's Golden Syrup (www.lylesgoldensyrup.com). If you can stomach White Plains, its available at Whole Foods. If not, its sold on Amazon.com.

        1. Try the European aisle in Stop & Shop (the bigger your store, the more likely they have a better section). I'm not from Westchester, but I think I've seen it at S&S.

            thanks; I'll give that a try. I don't shop at S&S but there is one near me.

              thanks RoleModel-- stopped at the S&S on my (sort of) way home and not only did they have it (in the "Irish" section) but I discovered that this store that I'd never set food in was quite surprisingly nice and much larger than my usual store.

                Balducci's in Scarsdale has it. ANd they have it in the new, resealable container, instead of the tin can.

            2. have you tried Kitch and kafe in bedford hills by CVS shopping center?

                as I wrote last night I found it *way* closer to home in the Stop and Shop in Peekskill. What a pleasant surprise.
