Buttermilk Syrup otherwise known as "Uncle Syrup"
When I make butter I am left with buttermilk. I make buttermilk syrup out of the fresh butter and the buttermilk.This recipe comes from my brother in law. My kids call it "Uncle Syrup".
I have made a few changes from the original recipe. I cut the butter in half, and I cook my syrup a bit longer (5 minutes as opposed to the original 1) It gets a bit darker in color and a bit more caramel flavor to it.
you will need a large saucepan (at least 4 quart) any smaller and it will boil over.
1 cup (1/2 pound) butter
2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons Karo syrup
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
Cook over a medium heat to a boil. Boil for about 5 minutes (watch so it does not boil over)
1 teaspoon vanilla
