1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup or 1 stick butter
2 tablespoons corn syrup
3/4 cup buttermilk (or 3/4 cup milk with 3 tbsp. vinegar added mix well let stand 2 min.)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
In a very large sauce pan or stock pot melt the butter add the sugar and corn syrup stir very well. Pour in the buttermilk and stir or whisk until combined add the baking soda and stir well, at this point the mixture will froth quite alot ( the reason for the large pot) just keep stirring over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour into a jar or something that you can serve it out of. You can use this immediately or make ahead and store in the fridge. Just microwave for 20 seconds and stir before serving.
I hope you all enjoy this syrup as much as we do. Let me know if you try it....
MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOURS!!!!
