Ingredients

1 c
buttermilk
1 tsp
soda
2 c
sugar
3 Tbsp
white corn syrup

1 c
chopped nuts (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Add soda to buttermilk and let stand for at least 5 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare a buttered pan or dish.
2
Add sugar and syrup to buttermilk mixture and cook until it reaches the soft ball stage or 238 degrees.
