Wart Syrup
« on: July 05, 2010, 09:46:57 AM »
Darn, it's been corrected. As of 8 a.m. PT today, the last paragraph in a NYT article about a trendy ice cream maker referred twice to "wart syrup," as in: "sticky toffee pudding, soaked in wart syrup (unfermented beer)" (with another reference, "Wart Syrup? Really?").

I do wonder if it's actually wort, or if it's beer a little farther along in its fermentation process. I live in SF and can check this out...

If that stuff gets on you, you'll start looking like a toad.
Change it back.

Could have actually been liquid extract?  Would seem to make more sense in an ice cream recipe.
