LINDA’S GINGER BISCUITS AND HOMEMADE GOLDEN SYRUP

LINDA’S GINGER BISCUITS AND HOMEMADE GOLDEN SYRUP
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups syrup
10 ml vinegar
8 cups self raising flour
250 gr margarine
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon bicarb of soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cream of tartar
5 tablespoons ginger
1 teaspoon salt

Sieve dry ingr together accept sugar…mix butter in dry ingredients.. Beat eggs, sugar, syrup and vinegar in electric mixer for about 5 min then mix well into flour mixture. Let the dough stand for about 5 hours. Roll balls and flatten slightly with finger, the dough flattens more while baking. Bake at 200c for 12-15 minutes… I normally let the dough stand for 2 hours before baking

Golden syrup absolutely define and you can put caramel or strawberry flavorings in if you want to.
9 cups sugar
5 ml cream of tartar
1 liter water
5 ml salt
1 ml ginger

Pour everything in big pot on high heat and stir until sugar dissolved. Let it now boil until light caramel color..be careful when it reaches caramel color it can start to go darker very quickly and taste burnt so take it off the hot plate.
Pour 500 ml cold water very slowly to hot syrup and stir. Now you can bottle the syrup as it is or add caramel or any flavoring to your taste to mixture, this recipe taste better than the shops syrup
enjoy
