Lovely syrup chef. We are enjoying this beautiful red syrup very much. So far I have served it with Jalapeno Cornmeal Waffles, it worked perfectly with them, it has just the right amount of sweet and tartness, a lovely contrast. Tonight we will be enjoying it with my favorite Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and then next week I will use the rest for garnish with cream on a Homemade Sponge Cake... I can't wait. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe, which was quick and easy to make with terrific results. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
