Brown Sugar Syrup

Where there is sugar, there are bound to be ants.
~ Malay Proverb

OK, here is the recipe for the syrup I made to serve with Tou Foo Fa.

I used brown sugar slab to make the syrup. The syrup made from brown sugar slab has a nice golden colour. You can buy this type of sugar from any Chinese groceries stores.


To make the syrup, boil one cup of water with one piece of brown sugar slab in a sauce pan.


The syrup is ready when the sugar is completely dissolved.


You may store any excess syrup in a covered bottle in the fridge for quite a long time. Simple right? 🙂

    I’m looking for uses for brown sugar slab. I have a packet and don’t know what to do with it. Any ideas or recipes gratefully received.
