My sister-in-law, Kami, introduced us to this homemade syrup several years ago. It’s rich, buttery, and delicious on everything: waffles, pancakes, French toast, German pancakes, crepes, etc. It’s fun to serve at a nice brunch because it’s something different, and a little fancier than maple syrup.
