Whoever told me about burnt simple syrup on this sub is my hero.

Could you explain?

Yes. In a medium sized pot, put about 1/3 cup sugar and then the burner on medium. When the edges start to brown SLOWLY add 1/3 cup of water. It might be best to have a lid handy as the mixture will start to splatter. You'll have a big hunk of seized sugar in the middle. Keep the heat up and stir lightly until that thing is all melted away and bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes. Let it cool a bit and transfer to the container of your choice.
Edit for exposition: It's just like regular simple syrup, but add the sugar first. You can use more than 1/3 cup of each, but it's a decent size batch for a first effort.
It adds a delightful oaky caramelized sweetness that adds a lot of depth. It's kind of like a golden brown marshmallow, but without all the melty bits.
