Recipe Notes

How to Make Rich Demerara Syrup: Combine two parts raw demerara (or turbinado) sugar with one part water in a sauce pan over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Let simmer until it becomes the consistency of very runny honey. Remove from heat, allow to cool, and transfer to a bottle or jar. Store in the fridge and use within four months.
