Sugar Question
I am new here, and I hope I'm not too off topic. I came across this site in search of an ingredient called "liquid amber sugar." I was not really looking to make beer; I was wanting to use it in a frozen dessert recipe. I had never heard of it before, and I could not find any product by that name except for a reference on a thread here:

http://www.babblebelt.com/newboard/thread.html?tid=1108752780&th=1193147515&pg=9&tpg=2

Given the recipe, I suspect it's not much different from a granulated sugar and water mixture. I also saw a reference from the Sugar Association claiming that "amber liquid sugar" (which I assume is the same thing as "liquid amber sugar") was just that only darker in color. However, it mentioned nothing on whether there was a flavor difference, who made such a product, or how it was made.

If anyone can tell me what "amber liquid sugar" is, where I might find it, or what else it is called, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Interesting, thanks!

I found some places that had the Amber Candi Syrup available. I can't say I'm sure that's what I want, especially since I'm not using it for beer, but I suppose it's worth a try.

Re: Sugar Question
I use the dark candi syrup in my coffee. Also very good over ice cream.

Re: Sugar Question
another idea would be agave syrup. I read about a fancy micro icecreammaker in the NYTImes foodie section using it at his place.

Re: Sugar Question
if ya ever been to N'awlins, you'll really go for STEENS cane syrup. The aroma is stellar, I'm going to use some in a dubbel soon.

It's possible they mean Lyle's Golden Syrup.
