Join the Buttermilk Syrup Craze
How It All Began
In 1983, my wife and I attended a pancake social. “Have you tried this syrup?” my wife asked. “It’s really good!” I tried it and immediately asked for the recipe. Homemade buttermilk syrup instantly became our family’s favorite. Whole wheat pancakes topped with frothy buttermilk syrup became a celebratory breakfast for large family gatherings and holidays.
One morning when I made pancakes, I went to the fridge and found we had run out of buttermilk. Out came the imitation maple syrup. My children pushed their plates away. Their faces said it all. The high-fructose corn syrup simply would not do. That’s when it hit me — this was no ordinary syrup.
