When, after many boilings, cane sugar syrup ceases to yield crystals, it is filtered and concentrated into this golden-colored syrup with lilting overtones of butterscotch and vanilla. It contains 15 to 18 percent water. Lyle’s, a British company, packages it as Lyle’s Golden Syrup. It can be used interchangeably with light corn syrup.
