Ok so I wasn’t even going to post this recipe until next week, but y’all seemed VERY KEEN to have it much earlier than that. Immediately, if not sooner.
Was it the golden syrup? That’s what did it for me!
I had a fruit + veggie box delivery that had amongst its goodness one lonely quince and many delicious-looking apples (which, incidentally, now that I’ve written it reminds me of that Ben Folds song One Angry Dwarf and Two Hundred Solemn Faces) They were stewing in my pot before you could say “compote”, and the golden syrup was out because I’d just made Anzac biscuits… and hello.
No solemn faces anywhere to be seen.
For my peeps who aren’t Australian, golden syrup is this. Feel free to use treacle/maple syrup. Won’t be quite so nostalgia-inducing (well, treacle may be) but will still be gooooood!
