Does anyone know Lyle's Golden syrup?


I love it and was raised with it. Mostly, I love it on PB sandwiches.
What's its' use?
Do you use it where you'd use honey?
Do you use it in place of corn syrup?
Is it for use with pancakes or waffles or Freedom toast?
I have 3 tins of it and it will go grainy.
Can I have suggestions please.
Thank you.

  1. I love the stuff. Can see using it in any of those instances, but haven' t tried substituting for corn syrup.

    Make a treacle tart.

    Drizzle on leftover yorkshire puddings (popovers) and add cream if you have it.

    Mix into yogurt?

    Eat with spoon out of the can.

    1. There are two very similar Lyle's Golden Syrup threads in action right now. To avoid confusion, we're going to lock this one and ask you all to move the conversation to the other thread.

      Thank you!

      1. A lot of British recipes call for it. Look at some of Nigella Lawson's cookbooks, for instance.
