  • About


  • 500 ml (17 fl oz) water
  • 250 g (9 oz) caster (superfine) sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean, split, seeds scraped
  • 160 fresh snowberries


Combine the water with the sugar and vanilla bean in a small saucepan, stirring over high heat until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil then remove from the heat.

Pass through a fine sieve into a bowl and chill completely.

Put the snowberries and syrup into a large cryovac bag and seal at medium vacuum. Allow to macerate in the bag in the refrigerator for 24 hours before using.
