the house I have recently moved in to had induction (dont laugh!!! not my choice, the previous occupant paid to have this piece of garbage installed!!!)
Hi all,I sometimes find a batch of base can turn too dark and sweet after a few hours or a day. I presume this is because of my low skill level, as a good chef produces consistent results. However can anyone enlighten me as to why a base that is nicely spiced, golden yellow in colour and mellow in taste could turn into a reddish brown and overly sweet concoction overnight? My first guess is that the base is over cooked, but I have found that sometimes a freshly cooked base left to cool is excellent, then a few hours later it tastes like a bag of sugar has been poured into the batch along with a very dramatic colour change? Thanks,Andrew
