  • I used to buy a small tub of syrup whenever I made ice cream. Way more than I needed. So this sounds like a good substitute. The heating process looks, ahem, delicate if you don’t have a Control Freak. And, I really do want one but cannot afford it right now. I have a gas cooktop, electric oven and a good sous vide setup. Do you think that heating in a sous vide bag would work? Thanks, Peter
