November's Dessert Doodah!

We try to hold a Sagers Sunday Dessert Night about once a month for our family who live in the area, as well as the collge-aged kids and their friends. It is always so much fun, and November's go-round was especially stellar with close to 40 people joining in the fun! We served waffles and buttermilk syrup, and let me just say that the syrup was basically being devoured straight up. It is good stuff, that. I'll post the recipe below because, believe you me, you want it. You do. You may  not know it, but you do.

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
2 t. vanilla
1 T light corn syrup
1/2 t. baking soda

In a large pot or saucepan over medium heat, add the butter, sugar, buttermilk, vanilla and corn syrup. Heat until everything is well combined and bring to a boil. Quickly remove the pot from the heat and add the baking soda, place back over the heat, stirring constantly. The syrup will grow large and threaten to boil over(!) which is why a large pot is essential. If it gets too close to the top, remove from the burner and continue stirring to bring it down. Stir for 30 seconds over heat (I often take mine off of the heat so I don't risk it boiling over) and serve!
