Hi Everyone - I hope you are all safe and healthy during this pandemic. I have a question about a pastry called a koeksister. I searched, and the name doesn't come up, so I will tell you a bit about them. They are a traditional South African, deep fried pastry, which is dipped into an ice cold sugar, cinnamon, lemon syrup. My question is: the syrup contains creme of tartar, and I am just curious to know why, and what does it do to the syrup. Thanks.
