Coconut Syrup

Time: 10 minutes
Yield: 2 cups
Recipe from Cooking Alamode

1/2 C butter
3/4 C buttermilk
1 C sugar
1/2 t baking soda
1-2 t coconut extract

1. Grab 1/2 cup of butter and place it in a medium-sized sauce pan. Be carefull not to use a sauce pan that is small. The syrup will bubble up and roll right over the side. Then you might kick the stove or start to cry or drop a curse word, and we don't want that to happen, okay? Just grab a nice medium-sized pan and all will be well.
2. Melt the butter over medium high heat. Add 3/4 cup buttermilk and 1 cup of sugar. Stir it all nicely together.
3. Bring the mixture to a boil, while stirring continually. Once you have a nice rolling boil, let it do so for 1 minute.
4. Remove the pan from the stove and add 1 teaspoon baking soda and 1-2 teaspoons coconut extract.Stir it all in to combine. The syrup will start to foam up and bubble. Do not be alarmed. 
5. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. It will thicken slightly as it cools down, which will give you a chance to do something like...make pancakes. :)
