|First I gathered up everything I would need ... the steeped hips,|
1Kg of honey from my local honey store, containers to pour the
completed syrup into (incl the currently full honey jar), ceramic pot,
bamboo spoon, and reusable cloth mesh jelly strainer.
|Using the mesh strainer bag, I poured the contents of the two thermos|
containers and the two mason jars into the ceramic bowl.
|The beauty of the cloth bag is that it allows me to really squeeze|
all the juice I can get out of the cooked mass.
|Stir in the honey and then keep on a low heat to reduce down|
to 1/2 it's volume.
|Finished syrup cooling in it's jars ....|
I'm kind of pleased that I gauged the amount so well.
Two Bears and most of a hive .. so the yield was 1.75L of yummy syrup.
Now to get some pancake batter ^_^
Or mabey just a spoon ^_~
