    Has anyone come across either a recipe or substitute for banana compound? I want to try a couple of recipes that use it, but don't necessarily want to spend the money on a whole jar right away. Any ideas?

    When making a compound I've added inverted sugar to get it thicker but still not as strong flavor as I would like. What else should I do when I'm boiling this down to make it thicker. I'm using this to make a chocolate truffle so I need most the water out
