Well, slowly I am going to disappear under the huge mountains of xmas cookies that I am baking day after day. I really enjoy it, though I was not sure if I wouldn't get bored. Not at all! I love doing it! In fact the most time consuming part of the proccess is the package making part, but still that is great fun. On the other hand I have plenty of idea that I would love to realise in the kitchen, but there is not enough time at the moment. Of course I note everything in order not forget a single idea! As I have run out of maple syrup I decided to prepare a small amount using mandarins, after all no pancake for breakfast without syrup, right? However, I'll show you on Monday, what I prepared to be served with the syrup so stay tuned! (Ah by the way, now you find the blog also on Facebook.)
150 ml mandarin juice
150 g sugar
2 tablespoons orange blossom honey
1 teaspoon orange liqueur
Sieve freshly squeezed mandarin juice and bring it to the boil over medium heat together with the sugar and honey. Cook for 5 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved. Let it cool a bit and stir in orange liqueur. If you use organic mandarins then add the grated zest as well.
