Great Great Grandma's Pioneer Trail Milk Syrup
She had a large family, they traveled in covered wagons. She cooked over an open fire and made wonderful things like this recipe to keep her children happy and energized...
I am so lucky to have so many of her recipes that have survived all these years! I hope you will try it.
The photo is of her daughter Charlotte Andrews Kennedy... I was a little girl when my great grandma died... but remember her so well... Families Are Forever!

How to Make Great Great Grandma's Pioneer Trail Milk Syrup
- In a saucepan, bring milk and sugar to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Keep boiling and stirring quickly to a boil that can't be stirred down.
- Remove from heat and stir in the nutmeg, vanilla and butter.
- Serve on waffles, french toast and pancakes. It is very delightful!
- *** Keep in mind... the milk back then was quite different from what we have today... You may want to use part cream.
*** Sometimes we add cinnamon too.
