    Default Carmelized

    Is there a way to tell if you overcooked the syrup?:confused:
    If it isn't broken, don't try to fix it. If you build it, they will fill it.

    If it's brown and tastes a little burnt. I don't cook the syrup. I heat the water and pour it on the sugar that's in the container...then stir. I burnt a batch once a long time ago which taught me my lesson!

    If you took the syrup off the heat before adding the sugar or right after adding the sugar you are fine, but to answer your question. If the syrup is brown, and taste like caramel (hince the name carmelize) or has a nutty flavor then it has started to carmelize.

    Boil the water. Add the sugar. Stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat. It shouldn't burn this way.
