Buttermilk Syrup

I am not a huge fan of maple syrup.  I discovered grade B maple syrup a year ago and that helped a bit, but in general, I think maple syrup ruins a good pancake.  I finally realized that I could actually make my own syrups of all kinds of different flavors!  Up until now my favorite has been coconut creme syrup, but buttermilk syrup has ratcheted to top of my must have pancake toppings. This syrup is out of this world and would be good on anything — pancakes, waffles, french toast….

My syrup is brown because as usual I used sucanat, but if you use white sugar, yours will be nice and white.
