Invert sugar - how hot does varoma get?
« on: April 27, 2014, 12:24:58 pm »
I want to make Invert Sugar http://www.chefeddy.com/2009/11/invert-sugar/ in order to make the Coffee Extract from the same site.  I've made them both before on the stovetop, before I had a tmx.

The Invert sugar needs to be boiled to 114 deg C.  I vaguely recall someone telling me that varoma temp was 115 degrees - can anyone confirm that? 

If that is correct, then I plan to try making the invert sugar in the tmx - anything I should keep in mind while doing this, apart from the normal safety considerations when cooking with boiling sugars?

Hi Melinda, I thought that the Varoma got to 120oC....
I looked at making invert sugar a while ago and I the end just used glucose and honey (I wasn't concerned about the flavour). I'm intetested to hear from others too.
I have a Facebook page with all things cooking, you'll find it here: https://www.facebook.com/What-Amber-Ate-1097437023601587/

I think the varoma is 100 * plus the steam.
