I want to make Baklava, but I do not know how long to cook the syrup for.
Some websites say 4-5 minutes, some say 20 minutes, and I am clueless...
I am using an 8x8 pan, 7 oz of white sugar and 7 oz of water.
Is there a specific temperature I should cook it to?
To avoid confusion - I am not looking for a simple syrup recipe, like the ones used to flavor drinks or keep cakes moist. I need a "light syrup", used for oriental sweets (as I've read), and most of the recipes call for "5 minutes of gentle boiling", so that is my best bet so far.
