I first experienced this in the USA, nothing to do with Italy. But they originated in Italy and we have several versions of different flavours on here. This recipe appears in Keeping it Simple. No longer available in print, all sold out. But you can access a copy when you join the Insider Club as an ebook, we have just added it to our library! AMAZING value, with over 108 recipes all of which can be used in multiple ways, so you really have around 300 recipes in there!
This is one of the soda syrups and although the weather is cold down under at the time of posting, we know it is hot up there in Italy where we all wish we were travelling to! Channel some Italian blue sky as you sip on this one! Enjoy.
Best of all, come join us on the Insider Club to have extra Thermomixery each and every month! #recipesthatwork #youcandoit
- 2 Tablespoons Vanilla Bean Paste BUY
- 1 Vanilla Bean broken into pieces BUY
- 250 Grams sugar
- 450 Grams water
- Sparkling mineral water to serve BUY
- Cream to serve
- Killer Vanilla Ice Cream to serve Recipe
Place all ingredients into Thermomix bowl and cook 8 min/90°C/speed 1.
Allow to infuse in Thermomix bowl for at least 30 minutes before removing vanilla pods.
Store in sterilised airtight jar in fridge until use.
You can leave the vanilla pods in the jar as this is not only pretty but will continue to release flavour.
To serve, drizzle a little of the syrup around a glass, fill it with ice, soda water, a splash of cream and if you must, some ice cream.
