Have you every had Buttermilk Syrup? I usually have buttermilk in my refrigerator because I use it when I make bread and when I make Ranch Dressing, and sometimes I even drink it with a little salt and pepper – but Buttermilk Syrup?
A few years ago I ran out of Maple Syrup and didn’t want to run to the store first thing in the morning to buy some so I started looking through my cookbooks for a recipe to make some kind of a syrup with ingredients I had on hand and came across a recipe for Buttermilk Syrup. I copied it off – for the next time….. but just couldn’t rap my head around a syrup made out of buttermilk being any good – until lately. I decided to make that recipe and I made a double batch so I could divide it into three bowls and used lemon, blueberry and strawberry extract for the favoring instead of the vanilla and found that I could almost drink the stuff. (I will have to admit that I liked the lemon the best.) It is REALLY good. You can not taste the buttermilk in it at all. As the old saying goes: “Don’t knock it until you try it!” I am sure you will like it as well.
The name really should be changed to Lemon Syrup or Strawberry Syrup…. or anything but Buttermilk Syrup. It is kind of like “Baked Oatmeal.” The name just doesn’t do the recipe justice. (I will post the Baked Oatmeal recipe at a later time.)
- 1/2 cup butter - melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 2 teaspoons light corn syrup
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda - Stir. Add:
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract (or whatever flavor you would like)
- In a large saucepan, combine first four ingredients. Bring to a boil, then pour in a large bowl (to accommodate the volume when it foams up when you add the baking soda).
- Add baking soda and extract of your choice.
- Stir and serve.
