  • What is buttermilk syrup? It's syrup made with buttermilk. 
  • How does that work? Buttermilk is very sour and very acidic.  We take the acid out of it so that it doesn't taste like buttermilk anymore.
  • How do you do that? It's magic. Actually, we neutralize the acid.
  • What does it taste like then? The acid is gone, so you don't have any of that acidy taste.
  • Is it tart? No, not at all. It's smooth and mellow.  There's a slight butterscotch, but it is so faint that most people don't notice it.  It's a little bit sweet because of the lactose, a form of sugar.  
  • Do you add caramel? We do have a little bit of flavor but mostly, you're tasting the caramel. Cooking butter and sugar together makes caramel.
  • So it's mostly a caramel syrup? Yes, mostly. You'll pick up a little of that butterscotch tone and a little vanilla, but it's a caramel syrup.
  • How do I know when it's cooked? It changes to a caramel color. It doesn't take long and it's dependable.
  • What happens if I keep cooking it? It turns into caramel candy.
  • When I start cooking it, it makes lots of bubbles. What's that? It's us doing our magic, neutralizing the acid.  Make sure that you have a big enough pan that it doesn't boil over.
  • How much syrup does it make? Two cups.
  • What do I add? Butter and water.


This is your family's new favorite syrup--better than maple. The taste is incredible, and you can use it in so many ways--not just pancakes! 

This is your every weekend syrup. It will make you a hero. Read the reviews. Then stock up.

Bakers' tip: You don't need to time it. Just stir so that it doesn't scorch, and cook it until it turns a beautiful caramel color. That's your timer! It's like magic. It won't take long.
