Buttermilk syrup -- ribbon and tag_zpskbxnbmlo

Hi guys!  I’m Amy from My 3 Monsters.  I’m loving all the ideas that have been shared so far in the 20 Crafty Days of Christmas, aren’t you?  One of my favorite parts of Christmas is creating something homemade and yummy for all our friends and neighbors.  It seems like the list of giftees gets longer and longer every year so I am always looking for something SIMPLE.  If you have the same problem, I have a great solution for you.  Last year we made jars of homemade Buttermilk Syrup and dropped them off.  Let me tell you, it was a HIT and we will definitely do it again.  If you have never tried Buttermilk Syrup, be sure to make a few extra jars for yourself and thank me later!

1 C. sugar
1/2 C.buttermilk
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. maple extract

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large pan and bring to a boil over medium heat.  Boil for 2-3 minutes,  Remove from heat and stir in extracts. Pour into mason jars.  Each recipe makes about 2 pint size jars.

Allow the syrup to cool then add a cute printable tag with holiday ribbon. It should last in the refrigerator for at least a week.  Your friends will be thrilled to receive a jar of this liquid happiness!  Winter mornings are perfect for hot pancakes smothered in caramel-y, yummy goodness.  Just warm up the syrup in the microwave and enjoy.
