Easy way to measure golden syrup

August 27, 2010 | Filed under Tip of the Day

When a recipe calls for golden syrup, dip the spoon into boiling water for a few moments before you measure the syrup. The syrup slides off the spoon and you get the full measure in your recipe instead of leaving a lot on the spoon. Also works for honey or treacle.
