Vanilla Syrup

Vanilla SyrupMy 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.Vanilla Syrup

Serve immediately.
It may still be frothy, but as it cools, you can stir the froth into the syrup.
(This isn’t necessary, as the froth is as delicious as the syrup.)
