Don't you just want to dive into that pool of deliciousness? Warm, soft, sweet, buttery deliciousness? With a little orange-y zing? And then go run 5 miles?
Forget I said that last part. That's just the crazy in me trying to get out. What I should have said was - Please, sir, may I have some more? Get in ma belly!
This syrup has now been nicknamed "surp" at my house. Like slurp, but without the L. Apparently this is how Ohio-ans say syrup. Crazy people. They probably run, too. Tsk.
Anyway... this syrup/surp/deliciousness was passed on to me years ago, from my SIL. We have never been the same. It's super easy to make and meshes very well with my french toast!
