I really wanted to like tannen syrup. I had never tried it before and it's thick and amber and smells like Christmas. It seemed so alpine and wholesome that I felt sure I would love it. I spread it thickly onto a piece of Zopf, breathed deeply (O Tannenbaum!) and took a bite. It tasted like an alpine meadow in bloom. It didn't taste like Christmas at all.
So, I decided that I needed to do something else with the rest of the jar, namely granola.
