I am sure you know black gummi candies very popular in Scandinavia, Germany or other northern European countries. They are commonly called as liquorice candies. In fact the root of liquorice has mild and sweet taste and the candies are flavoured with salmiac. The liquorice syrup is used to manufacture those candies but with addition of salmiac the taste becomes chilly and salty. My recipe is for mild ‘sweet liquorice syrup’. It matches perfectly desserts, ice cream or homemade truffles.
you will get about 125 ml
- ½ cup (125ml) liquid treacle (molasses)
- 2 teaspoons ground liquorice root
- 1 teaspoon pure anise extract
All ingredients mix well. Pour into a jar and close up the lid. Shake before use.
