So for years I have wanted to make honeycomb, but all the recipes I have seen have sounded too scary, and have included weird things like glucose syrup, which I have not even seen in shops. Imagine my delight when the latest Waitrose magazine included a recipe for honyecomb, and all it needed was sugar, golden syrup and bicarb. I had to give it a go!
All it needed was 100g sugar and 4 tbs golden syrup- it ended up being very sticky so I think next time I would only use 3, but that is the trouble with volume and not weight amounts. Anyway, you heat it up until it reaches 140C, and then beat in 1 1/2 tsp bicarb with a wooden spoon. I had lined a large baking tray as I had no idea how much it would puff up, but a normal one would have been fine. It did spread quite a bit, so a smaller tray with high sides would have been better for chunkier pieces.
It didn’t take that long to set, so then I went about breaking it up and dipping it in melted chocolate.
Then I took it into work today, and it was gone by lunchtime!
I am so pleased with how it went, and now I have another item I can make for Christmas gifts.
In other news, my hip has been better today, but still not right. I am a bit worried about the physio appointment tomorrow (I hate that sort of thing anyway), especially if the pain is all gone. I am hoping she can work out what it is even if I can’t feel it any more.
To stop myself being tempted by pump I booked a haircut this evening, so after work I raced over to Welwyn, sat in Starbucks listening to marathon talk (I am so behind, but I heard my recap of the Brighton 10K- they liked my Royal Flush negative split!), drinking a chai latte, before going to the hairdressers. Then we are packing as tomorrow evening we are getting the Eurostar for a weekend of Christmas markets in Europe. Exciting!
Anyone been to a physio before? What shall I expect?? Also what shall I wear- I don’t even have tracksuit bottoms…
Have a lovely weekend!
