I've been surfing the blogosphere for some time now, trolling for new and exciting recipes to give a go. One thing that I've noticed is that quite a few British and Australian folks have recipes that call for "treacle". Treacle, it turns out, is a bit like our molasses in The States, only it is much darker, with a more bitter and almost smoky taste to it. So imagine how excited I was to find both treacle and golden syrup at a lovely little place here in town.
