Whelp, this just happened. I thought I was a die-hard buttermilk syrup fan and I truly do still adore it, but this peanut butter maple syrup and I have pretty much fallen in love and while it makes it impossible to walk after eating it’s worth it. Who needs to walk anyway? I asked Cade to just carry me upstairs after breakfast, but he just looked at me. I’ll take that as “No.” Anyway, I’m headed to Florida next week for the first time ever and I’ve teamed up with Real California Milk to bring you a little something delicious.
And the more I’ve been learning about California Dairy the more I can’t help but want to head out to Cali one day and just see how it all goes down. Here are just a few things I’ve learned… **California is the number one dairy state in the US, producing more milk, butter and ice cream than any other state and is the 2nd largest producer of cheese and yogurt. Seriously? I had no idea! ** Many California dairy products are sold nationally. 99% of California dairies are family-owned. When you look for and buy products with the Real California Milk and Cheese seals you know that your dairy products are made from 100 percent California milk from California’s over 1500 dairy families.
I love dairy. I love the sweet farmers that go above and beyond what I do in a day just to produce a product they are proud of and, most importantly, I love that dairy is not only good for you, but it makes everything taste better.
The California Milk Advisory Board will be at BlogHer Food in Miami so all you bloggers can check them out. There will be a California Milk Advisory Board onsite cooking demonstration on Friday, May 16 at 3:15-4:00pm. To celebrate the month of May, the unofficial Hispanic dairy month, attendees will be learning tips and techniques for cooking with California Hispanic dairy products from renowned Miami chef Giorgio Rapicavoli. Check out the event hashtag #CADairy to follow along. So fun, right? Anyway, let’s get back to the syrup that was so good I wanted to drink the darn stuff.
Homemade syrup is one of the very first recipes that I remember my mom making as a kid. We had a big garden full of berries and she would have us kids pick the berries so she could make jams, syrups and fresh fruit cobbler. It was seriously magical watching her garden all summer then turn everything into such amazing and delicious food. Sadly it’s been too cold for much gardening yet, but I still love making different homemade syrups for my family just like she did. This one uses California milk, butter and cream and it has this awesome peanut butter flavor with a hint of maple (a little nod to my mom and her maple syrup and the hubby who put both peanut butter and syrup on his pancakes).

Just had this & the buttermilk syrup on pancakes (yours, of course) for my Mother’s Day breakfast. Love them both. Thank you for all of the delicious recipes. Xoxo
That is the best way I know how to celebrate Mother’s Day!! So glad you enjoyed it!
How do you store this?, fridge or pantry and how long is it good for?
Hi, we store it in the fridge for up to 3 weeks. 🙂
I don’t see why this could not be frozen.
Can this be stored for use at a later time?
We do it all the time. It usually lasta 7-14 days. 🙂
Love your site. I live in Ontario Canada and we have never heard of Organic maple syrup. Save your money and just buy real Maple Syrup.
I so would if I could find it. Here all I’ve got is heading to an organic store otherwise it’s that darn processed stuff. Maybe I need to visit Canada and bring home a bunch!
Maple Syrup Lover
All “REAL” maple syrup is organic by default of where it comes from, maple trees. Don’t confuse real maple syrup for the so called maple flavored high fructose corn syrup or pancake syrup that is sold in super markets. That is not maple syrup and is not allowed to be labeled as such and should not be referred to as maple syrup.

Yum! I love the idea of peanut butter maple syrup, especially with chocolate chip pancakes…who could resist that combination?
I certainly didn’t! I ate way too many!
Aimee @ Like mother like daughter
