Syrups are sticky, sweet liquid ranging from somewhat thick to very thick. They are often flavoured.
They are based on some form of sugar and water. The sugar doesn't necessarily come from sugar cane, and isn't necessarily sucrose.
Depending on the syrup, it can be used at the table as a topping, in the kitchen as an ingredient, or both.
Some syrups may crystallize over time; they can be restored to a runnier state with a quick zap in the microwave or over a double-boiler.
