INGREDIENTS FOR SUGAR SYRUP
125 ml water
250 gr sugar
1 cinnamon stick
2 pieces of lemon zest (without the white part)

KITCHEN TOOLS FOR SUGAR SYRUP
1 x pot

SUGAR SYRUP PROCESS
1. Pour water, sugar, cinnamon stick and lemon zest inside a pot
2. Turn on the heat (medium) to warm up the liquid - don't mix the syrup but let it stay, otherwise bobbles will appear in the final custard
3. Let the liquid boil (rolling bubbles) more than 2 minutes
4. Let the syrup cool with lemon zest and cinnamon stick, so it will absorb the flavors. Cover the container and preserve at a room temperature.

Before the class starts, make sure you have weighted your ingredients and placed them in separate containers (e.g. bowls, jug, glasses, plates)
