Read through the instructions of the recipe first to familiarize yourself with the method so you get the hang of it before starting. Put a dollop or two on top of your coffee.

Cook's Notes:

This can be made in advance and kept for a few hours at room temperature. Just give it a bit of a whirl before using.

Try it with either white sugar or raw cane sugar; each has their unique flavor.
