Last winter we tried buttermilk syrup for the first time and boy did we fall in love! It’s so creamy and tastes like liquid caramel. With this new found love we decided to make up a whole bunch and give some away for Christmas gifts. We wanted to share it with you to go along with our Christmas in July theme. However it doesn’t have to be December to enjoy this tasty treat!
We found this recipe earlier this year and revised it to have ingredients that fit our needs. Everyone who tries it loves it! It can be used on waffles, pancakes, French toast, German pancakes, ice cream and anything else you want to sweeten up a little. Just remember to refrigerate if you have any left over 😉
It’s canning season were we live so we like to pick up a bunch or jars to give them in right now. They are much more expensive during the winter. Or another cute thought is to save all your leftover pickle and mayonnaise type jars. That way each jar of syrup is unique and fun! Another bonus is that the syrup freezes so you can make a big batch now and throw it in the freezer until Christmas time. Having it all ready to go right now really helps for a more stress free December!
3 Cups Sugar
1 ½ Cups Buttermilk
1 Cup Butter
2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 Tbs. Real Vanilla
Put all Ingredients except vanilla in a sauce pan and bring to a boil stirring constantly. Continue to stir and boil lightly for 7 minutes. It will begin to turn a beautiful golden brown. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Enjoy!
