I wanted to use my Earl Grey syrup for French toast. So, I decided to nuke some of it in the microwave, add a little water, and whisk it like crazy. Once I got it to the consistency I wanted, I ran it through a sieve to remove any solid particles, and set it aside in order to begin making my French toast. Then, I just drizzled my syrup over the toast. They tasted yummy! Quite different from maple syrup. I could really detect the tea and the citrus notes of that famous Earl Grey flavour.

What else can you use your syrup for? Well, you could drizzle it over ice-cream, baklava, a parfait, or hot oatmeal cereal. You can add it to a smoothie, or even use it as the sweetener for your tea. I also poured some of mine over Greek yogurt with chopped almonds and enjoyed that for dessert.
Remember to think of the consistency of your syrup. Re-heat the syrup in the microwave or on the stove-top, add a little water, whisk it and strain it through a sieve if you need to. It’s a bit of work, but the results are worth it. You could even make your syrup to a consistency just a little thicker than water or that of maple sap. Then, depending on what you plan to use it for, you can heat a portion of it and thicken it to your liking. Pretty sweet!
