Buttermilk Syrup

This recipe is a classic that you can find on Kneader's and Magelby's breakfast menus.  My friend made some for me last Christmas, and now I don't even have to go out for some gourmet goodness.  It's easy too.  Serve it on Crepes or pancakes or french toast:  pretty much anything, excluding the drink. (You can drink it, but that's more of a by yourself type thing.)


This is probably one of those times when you want to buy real buttermilk.  You can try substituting the vinegar and milk combo, but it won't end up as thick. Combine 1 C butter, 1 C buttermilk, and 2 C sugar. You don't need to pre-melt the butter.  Just throw it in there.  I told you this was easy.  Bring it all to a boil.

1 C butter
1C buttermilk
2 C sugar
1t vanilla
1/2 t baking soda
2 T pure Maple Syrup

Off the heat, add 1/2 t baking soda.  It will bubble up, so make sure you have space in your bowl. Now add 1 t vanilla and stir it all together. You can use 1 t maple flavoring or 2 T pure Maple syrup to finish it off.  I like the real deal, but it's up to you.

 
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let it thicken and develop some color. Serve at room temperature or pop it in the microwave for a few seconds. And Here it is frozen.  Still drizzles.  

Notes:  This freezes very well for up to 3 months.  You can even scoup out a little bit for breakfast when it is frozen because it doesn't freeze solid.  Pretty nifty.
