A recipe passed to me from my Mother. Seems like an awful huge amount of sugar but it might be really good. I do like buttermilk!
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Combine the sugar, buttermilk, and butter in a saucepan.
Heat and melt the ingredients together over medium heat, stirring regularly. If you do NOT stir then the buttermilk may curdle.
When the mixture starts to bubble and boil around the edges pull it off of the heat and add the vanilla and the baking soda. Stir them together quickly and watch the mixture bubble up and grow.
Pour liberally over your food and ENJOY!
