      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      An inexpensive essential ingredient for all your cooking

      The Treacle

      Lyle's Black Treacle is a must for your cupboard. It is made from cane sugar and molasses which give it a sweet, sticky consistency and very dark colour Not only is it a versatile cooking ingredient but it is one of the main ingredients of 'Treacle Toffee' a 'toffee to stick jaws together', often made and given on bonfire night. I never saw the recipients of my 'Treacle Toffee' again so it must work.

      Uses

      Lyles Black Treacle can be used in a wide variety of recipes from cakes and puddings to marinades for meat dishes such as pork and lamb. I have personally used it in Nigella Lawson's Ginger cake and it is delicious. Lyles Black Treacle has a rich burnt caramel flavour which adds a rich sweetness and colour to any recipe.

      Size and storage

      Lyles Black Treacle comes in regular size tin of 454g and costs approximately 54p in my local supermarket.. Its classic design with the Lyles lion and the black, gold and red pattern makes it easy to spot in any store. It should be stored in a cool place and used before the best before date as pressure can build in tins.

      My opinion

      A richer substitute for its sister product 'Golden Syrup', make s great marinade for pork or ham, I am never without a tin in my cupboard.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A very lovely tasting product.

      I am not doing myself any favours by writing this review because as soon as I start thinking about Lyles Black Treacle I want some.

      My wife buys this solely for the purpose of baking with, she makes delicious Gingerbread with it as well as treacle cookies and delicious dark rock cakes but I like it straight from the tin too.

      I love this stuff spread lightly on digestive biscuits and even sometimes have some from the tin with a spoon. Lyles Black Treacle comes in 454g tins which are red in colour and have the famous Lyles sleeping lion on them making them instantly recognisable.

      Lyles are probably more well known for their golden syrup, boiling their famous syrup further is how they make this delicious treacle.

      This black treacle has a very strong taste and is really a bit love it or hate it, the main taste is one of a strong caramel but it has a bit of a charred taste that leaves a bit of an after taste and this will put many people off.

      This black treacle can be used in many baking recipes but that is very much my wife's department, as I mentioned she makes some lovely cakes and biscuits using this but my wife herself would never eat this from the tin as I do as she says the flavour is far too strong.

      My wife informs me that she purchased the last 454g tin from Asda at the price of 59p which to me seems very inexpensive for such a versatile and lovely product.
