Happy Holidays!
In the spirit of sharing things that are sweet and good, I offer you the recipe shown below, which is one of my very favorites. It is a beautifully simple syrup made from buttermilk, which you can prepare in 15 minutes on a holiday morning. The syrup turns lovely brown without any fancy procedures, and tastes like milky caramel - reminiscent of dulce de leche

Serve it over pancakes, waffles, fritters, french toast, bread pudding or ice cream; dip cookies or bread in it; or gobble it with a spoon. 

I hope you and yours will love this recipe as much as I and mine do. Enjoy it in good health!
