From nneckredrecipes.blogspot.com : If you are somewhere in this world where golden syrup is not readily available, this homemade version is a good substitute. Of course in terms of fragrance, you can't beat the commercial ones.

Units: US | Metric
- 1Pour 200g sugar and 50g water into a large saucepan. On medium heat, twirl the pot around and caramelise the sugar until a dark golden colour.
- 2Add the boiling water, the kilo sugar and lemon slices.
- 3On low heat boil for 45 minutes until thick (stir it ocassionally if you must or leave it alone to do its own thing).
- 4Cool and pour into sterilised jars or bottles. Label and store in a cool place.
- 6The syrup when hot will always look watery but will thicken when cooled.
- 7If you find after cooling the syrup is not thick enough, don't panic - boil it again for a few more minutes.
- 8On the other hand if you find after cooling the syrup is way too thick, make up another half recipe, add the 'hard' syrup in as well and boil it all together for less than the required 45 minutes.
