@mdszy thank u for everything skelly 💚 💚
slightly more than half of you turned out to be correct. congrats
köcheln is a cute word
it also occurs to me now that people who didn't grow up in the uk/ireland usually drink fancypants teas youre less likely to put milk in anyway
i occasionally get weird looks for asking for milk with tea in cafés and such (well, back when we went outside) so i think maybe it might be the other way round?
Mixing 30ml (1oz) of the syrup with ~100ml of club soda makes a delightful drink, and a lime wheel with a sprig of clapped mint brings a nice aromatic accent. This would be even tastier with some lemon in it.
Just look at the gorgeous color of this stuff! It smells like tart strawberries.
Last week I put together a quick batch of rhubarb syrup. It was super simple and the results were delicious. Kept the solids too as a sweet compote. Almost no waste!
- ~450g rhubarb, trimmed and cut quite small
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1.25 cups tap water
- large mesh strainer
- measuring cup
- mason jars
1. Dissolve sugar in water, bring to a summer
2. Spoon in the chopped rhubarb
3. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes
4. Strain liquid from solids through cheesecloth after it has cooled a bit so you can properly wring it a bit.
5. Keep the solids too, they're delicious on toast or ice cream!
