Golden Syrup

15 posts in this topic

Hi all!

I have never tasted Golden syrup & hubs & I both have to be low salicylate for some months & that means NO corn syrup aka Log Cabin, Aunt Jemima, etc....

That leaves 2 choices ---- maple syrup & golden syrup (berry syrups are out).

I know, I know, the vast majority of you will say MAPLE SYRUP!!!!! Well, I duck & run as I say this but neither hubs nor I care for Maple syrup.unsure.gif

Soooooo, the question is ---- can you give me a good idea of what golden syrup tastes like before I go out & spend money on it just to find out we don't like it OR go to the trouble of making it myself just to dislike it?

Thanking you in advance!

MAPLE!!!!! :P

Golden syrup is richer and deeper than regular corn syrup. It is used in many recipes. I personally do not like it on pancakes and so on because I find it too sweet for that application. But I do use it in baking. It does not have an unpleasant or offputting flavour.

Thankfully it is inexpensive should you dislike it.

Do you really need syrup? Maybe just don't eat pancakes or waffles for a while? Or try honey, flavored yogurt, powdered sugar instead? My son likes powdered sugar on a waffle. Put it on a really hot waffle and it sort of melts.

Boil finely diced apples with brown sugar and a little water. When the apples are soft, take off the heat and add a dash of vanilla. Lovely over pancakes.

Jellies and jams are other alternatives. Guava jelly on pancakes is very good. Not gaggy sweet.

You can also make your own incredibly easy simple syrup that requires two ingredients: granulated sugar and water. Then you can flavour it with other things such as lemongrass, chili powder, keffir lime leaves, vanilla bean, fruit...almost anything. Simple syrups are the base for many other things but that is another thread. :)

Okay gals, .... low sals, low iodine..... meaning honey & yogurt are out as are guava jelly or any jam or jelly that is not golden delicious apples or mangos, also out are chili powder, lime leaves, lemongrass. We're trying to get the dh to calm down not crank it up to full speed.laugh.gif

Having said that; thank you Love2 for the info. on what golden syrup tastes like. Actually, the hubs loves the gaggo sweet so that is probably a good thing in favor of golden syrup. And the cost is good.

Karen, the powdered sugar is an option - thanks.

jestgar, I like the ideas but I am saving the apples, brown sugar thing for after dinner deserts for Mr. Sugar Fix since we are so limited on things we can eat. Plus I'm going to try to make some golden delicious "jam" for putting on some bread I make.

I only hope the next 4-6 months fly quickly by & we can begin eating more foods! I adore fruit! Did I say I adore fruit? I ADORE FRUIT!

Thanks ladies for all your help. Sincerely.

Be careful and be sure to read the label on your powdered sugar. A lot of powdered sugars have corn starch...were you one of those that needs to avoid corn? I might be mixing up someone else's post :blink: .

When I was a little kid I would always ask if I could have my last pancake with just butter. Finally one day Mom looked at me and said, "You don't like maple syrup, do you?" I almost cried as I relpied, "No."

I was raised that you eat what's put in front of you, so I thought I HAD to use the syrup. When Mom told me I didn't have to eat it anymore I was SO relieved! I have never eaten maple syrup since, except in an occasional piece of baklava. And even then, it gives me hiccups. I wish they could make bakalava that wasn't sweet. (gluten-free, of course.)

And when I worked in doughnut shops I would always put aside a couple of glazed donuts that HADN'T been glazed yet because they are so much better without that sweet glop on them.

The only sweet thing I have ever really liked is ice cream. Can you do ice cream? Hagen Daz vanilla is cream, milk, sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract. Maybe you could use that on your pancakes?

No, I'm cool with cornstarch but not cornmeal as the high sals come into play.

Personally, I'm much more like you bartful. Never really had too much of a sweet tooth & it's grown less & less over the years. Now, hubs is a different matter entirely.

We could both do ice cream except we get back into that old iodine factor. Sigh. Just doing time until we can EAT so many things again. We'll get there --- later if not sooner!laugh.giflaugh.gif

Oh yeah, eggs have iodine don't they? Can you do sour cream? Believe it or not, sour cream is really good on pancakes. Your hubby could then pour on the powdered sugar.

I have a bottle of Lyle's golden syrup from when I tried Failsafe. I just went and tasted it and it tastes very sweet with a light brown sugar flavor. It doesn't taste of maple at all to me. It would be fine for gaggo-sweet on pancakes. :lol:

I was using it in stir-fry trying the substitute soy sauce trick in Sue Dengate's cookbook. I don't agree with Sue that it makes a soy sauce flavor but it does carmelize in the wok to add some interest to stir-fry.

Thanks Skylark! Gaggo sweet it is then!biggrin.gif

bartfull, dairy is iodine so no sour cream. And you know that weird hubby I have? Gags at sour cream! Only thing I've ever been able to get him to eat that contains sour cream is beef stroganoff.

    • Tri-Tip Salad with Beets and Arugala (Gluten-Free)
      In many parts of the country, it's not uncommon to find some meat in your salad. This recipe tops fresh greens with sweet oranges, roasted beets and sliced Tri-tip steak. View the full article
    • Need help with "positive" blood test results
      You'll want to keep an eye on all your vitamin levels, as absorption problems are quite common with gastritis. You've probably already looked it up, but this is the WebMD page on gastritis. http://www.webmd.com/digestive-disorders/digestive-diseases-gastritis  It's not the best article as they mention 'treating' it with antacids which is pretty much the opposite of helpful. (https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2002/01/020115074441.htm) If the medication they were going to prescribe is an antibiotic, you might want to reconsider. If you have H. pylori, an antibiotic is the only sure way to get rid of it. If you don't get rid of the bacteria, the B12 deficiency will worsen.

      Yes, ATTITUDE, in all caps, and i am in the field of health care...!

      Thanks for pointing all that out Gemini! I look forward to finally getting off gluten for good to see how much everything changes.  I never thought about the absorption of my synthroid with all my other issues.  I just see my primary dr. for all my thyroid, perhaps I will ask for a referral to an endo dr for further evaluation and treatment.  Thanks for all the information! 
    • Gluten And Vertigo
      Christiana, I just felt to look at the site. I thought I had clicked to get email alerts. But, actually my email has been 'fritzing' sort of.  Thank you for your note. It is important for my diagnosis. I was diagnosed with chondritis of the collar bone a few months before the fall that resulted in the immobile right arm. The osteo surgeon gave me a cortosol shot that helped a lot. That MRI showed a rotator cuff tear nearly 2/3 thru the strip of tissue that connects the muscle tissue to the bone and makes the shoulder 'rotate' in place.  That was almost a year ago now. I have been learning to be very very mindful about how I use that arm, when I reach, carefully, how I rest it and sleep position. Interesting that I did see a search answer that said ' they are saying now that there could be a connection btn rotator cuff tear and inflammed collar bone. My primary doctor also said I could have an inflammed chest wall that resulted in the chondritis. I remembered that word from a child's diagnosis years ago. That was in his knees and was treated by this same osteo surgeon, by casting the legs over summer holiday, which ended in healed x-rays. That was osteo chondritis desicans. He said then, 'if it is horses, we would have to shoot them.'  I tried to get a blood test three weeks ago for the same antibody we were treating that child with thru his then pediatritian, for rheumatoid antibodies/ recurring strep throat. I had gotten a 'sort of' diagnosis, or agreement from that primary care doctor, allowing me to get the recommended antibiotics (one of the few treatments that it is allowed, because of the need to keep the hearing). But, his new nurse did not relay the request properly. I hate doctor office politics. I hope this newbie is not going to mess with this doctor's little family as well. Last month when researching Meniere's one of the things listed about it was that autoimmune disease is connected to it also. I was hurt before the falls and the inflammation and the collar bone chondritis and the rotator cuff tear. I was very very concerned about it setting off some kind of autoimmune inflammation reaction or worse that can happen when tissue cells are being repaired rapidly and it felt like lots of toxins were being cleansed and processed over a period of many months. The only similar feeling I have ever experienced was when I had a 'deep tissue massage' to release and cleanse a cortisol 'hump' I had after a prolonged period of high family stress situation. Right now, my primary (an O.D. , or osteopath) is working with me. There are two ENTs in this area he offered for Meniere's and has given me Physical Therapy at his complex for Balance Therapy. It is great that that therapist has a MIL that is also dealing with Meniere's and getting exercises from a major hospital complex in the city. I was able to give her some celiac's diagnosis information. Sounded like her MIL and her son were likely to be candidates.  I did not know what the definition was of the term 'vestibular' as in vestibular migraine, another connection to Meniere's. I just typed www.bing.com and then typed 'definition of vestibular.' That had information about the connections btn hearing and sitting positions. I will look up costochondritis. Thank you, again. Best wishes, Anne

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
