Coffee Syrup for Iced Coffee
« on: January 09, 2010, 10:49:05 am »

Two years ago I developed a recipe for Coffee Syrup.  The good members of Forum Thermomix offered some suggestions as to how I might improve the recipe. Today I made a batch of the Coffee and incorporated some of these suggestions.  This is the revised recipe incorporating the changes, the original recipe has been removed.

Infuse 1 1/2 cups of FINEground coffee of choice in 1 1/2 cups of boiling water,  for 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup of raw sugar to TMX bowl and after 10 minutes strain the infused coffee in on top of the sugar.  I used 4 layers of Chux.  After 10 minutes I squeezed hard, with my hands to remove as much liquid as possible.
Bring to the boil on Varoma temperature ans boil for 3 minutes, speed 1
Bottle into sterile bottle.  Makes 1 1/4 cups.
It will keep for 6 months.
You may add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract to bottle.

Add  1 1/2 tablespoons of the syrup to a large glass of milk,  topped up with ice cream.
OR
Add syrup, milk and ice blocks to TMX and zap.

Guess you could freeze it in ice-cube trays and use them as you need them Chookie.  Nice for summer.

Good idea JD - used frozen chicken stock cubes last night making a cold pea soup.

I am going to do this.  Will I buy a packet of ground coffee or buy the beans and grind them in the TMX. Muchy muchy I guess.

I adore iced coffee in the hot weather. I've taken to making a shot of expresso on the machine and putting it in the TMX with ice cubes and I even bought skim milk (we usually have hi-lo) so I can have lots.

Chookie, I don't take sugar in my coffee so I could make your syrup  without it couldn't I?  But then it may not keep. I think I'll keep doing as now. (sorry, thinking via the screen)

Oh Yum! Thanks for that - I'm on here looking for lots of milk recipes - my cow, ClaraBell finally had her calf yesterday and we'll be in full milk production by the end of the week!  ;)

Tenina has a coffee version on the Brownie Milk recipe on the blog and I think it has more sugar than this one - not sure  ??? ??? will have to do the maths but I make it all the time along with the Brownie Milk and it can be dangerous  ;D ;D I don't think it is the sugar that preserves it Cookie, as it is a cooked syrup - I could be wrong!!!

Faffa, we have both the coffee and chocolate version of this syrup in the fridge at all times.  Much better than bought milk flavourings!

I'll try to resist making it because if I do I'll only consume it within a couple of days. Even with hi-lo milk that would be very naughty of me. :'(

I have just made a batch of this Chookie. I think I made the mistake of straining the coffee back into the TM bowl through a sieve instead of something finer like a chux-lined sieve as our first drink was very gritty (it had dregs like you find in the tray of a coffee machine).  So I added another 1/2 cup boiling water to the existing mixture so that it wasn't as thick and strained this lot through the chux. It was a perfect glass of iced coffee with the sweetness level being just right for us.  After a couple of large glasses each  ??? ??? I filled a 300ml bottle with the syrup and as it lasts a month, don't think I need to freeze any of this lot - I'm sure it will all be gone within the month. Best iced-coffee I've had in a long while and I am keeping this in mind for whenever I do a TMX hamper in the future. Thanks so much for the posting Chookie  :-* :-*

Where can I find the chocolate version? My kids love chocolate milk.
