Ingredients

  • 10 juniper berries
  • 1 clove
  • 1 green cardamom pod
  • 120g whipping cream
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 50g dark muscovado sugar
  • 90g golden syrup
  • 90g black treacle
  • 65g evaporated milk
  • 65g butter

Method

  • STEP 1

    Toast the spices in a dry pan until fragrant, then pour in the cream. Heat on high until the first simmering bubbles appear, then turn off. Pour into a blender and whizz to break up the spices, then pour through a sieve.

  • STEP 2

    Put the remaining ingredients into a pan with the infused cream over a medium heat. Cook, stirring regularly, until the mix reaches 120C on a sugar thermometer. Pour onto a baking-paper-lined 20cm x 20cm tray and leave to cool for 4 hours or until set, then cut into squares or circles.
