So it’s been 2 weeks since we moved in. Two entire, (mostly) wonderful weeks. I’ve had three dinner parties, put out about 1,000,000 bags of rubbish, successfully put up one set of window blinds and watched about 2.5 films.
But there are some things I’m not quite getting. Like framed photos, apparently it’s weird that we don’t have any. Why can’t I just project my Instagram feed everywhere and be done with it?
Another thing that’s been
ruining my life bothering me is the laundry. It seems that my purpose in life, the reason why I was placed on this earth, is to spend endless hours of precious time doing laundry. What I want to know is where is it all coming from, who is putting it in my laundry hamper, and why does one man need/have SO MANY SOCKS???
And then the bills, ohhh the bills. Those things make no sense to me, let’s not talk about it.
Also dust. Dust everywhere. And I think our neighbours quietly hate us.
*cries into glass of wine*
Honeycomb is the only thing making my world right again, so I’m here to share it with you.
Makes one slab
400g caster sugar
5 tablespoons golden syrup
2 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
Add the sugar and golden syrup to a heavy-bottomed pan and stir until mixed. Place onto a medium heat and using a wooden spoon, stir until the sugar granules are moist and incorporated.
No more stirring after this, just continue to heat the sugar mixture, whirling the pan occasionally, until you have a bubbling amber coloured caramel – around 3-4 minutes. As soon as it hits that amber colour remove it from the heat and whisk in the bicarbonate of soda until frothy.
Pour onto a prepared baking sheet and leave to set for around 1 hour. Break the honeycomb into shards using your hands, or add to a blender to create honeycomb dust as shown above.
