glycerine

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Silver Spoon (the sugar manufacturer) make this in small tubes - blue in colour. I can vouch that it is sold in Sainsburys and would imagine that all supermarkets with a cake decorating section would also sell it. Silver spoon sell liquid glucose as well.

Glycerine vs Liquid glucose

Being a Virgo.... Is there a difference between the two? I suspect there is, but maybe the uses are inter-changeable.

I know my Royal icing made with LG was much harder than when I made it with G.

Totally different. Glycerine is used, as you discovered, to keep royal icing softer.

Glucose is sugar.

glycerine

Glycerin is a thick liquid that is colorless and sweet tasting. It's hygroscopic - absorbs water from the air - and is used in soap making (and nitroglycerin for dynamite!!).

As Welshcookie said, glucose is a simple sugar. Very different compounds and not interchangeable.

Thank you. I now know to bring out the glycerine not the liquid glucose next Bonfire night!

SonyaK, you wouldn't be a chemist would you?

No, JaneMR, not a chemist! But I did study Biology at Uni (a long time ago) and did quite a bit of Biochemistry.
Also, was interested so I Googled and found the information I gave in my last post.

Glucose syrup

Or use the info. that someone (I think Honey or Yummy)
posted a while ago. I've copied it below:

"Glucose Syrup for Truffle Torte
For anyone who can't obtain the Glucose Syrup for the above dessert use:-
5 TBSP of water
5 TBSP of Caster Sugar
Microwave on medium until the sugar dissolves allow to cool slightly then use as Glucose Syrup, the results are just the same and will keep in a small bottle if you don't use it all, but to be honest it is so simple there is really no need to keep it, just make fresh each time you need
it. "


Probably a cheaper option!!
