My neighbor told us about Buttermilk Syrup the other day... and to be honest I thought it sounded gross. She was adamant that it was the best stuff EVER and insisted I try a spoonful.
She was right. This is DELICIOUS! It's great as a syrup, a glaze, by itself... my personal favorite has been with cinnamon rolls.
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla
Heat sugar, buttermilk, & butter in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat & simmer for a few minutes. Turn off heat, add baking soda & vanilla.
Refrigerate overnight (to let the soda calm down).
Reheat when you're ready to eat.
