Have you found a wonderfully delicious way to use our syrup? If so, post your recipe in the comments and share it with the world! Need to order a bottle? There’s a link to it in our online shop at the bottom of this page.
Here’s our favorite way to use it.
Cornbread and Ice Cream
Bake a pan of fresh cornbread. I make mine from scratch using a recipe my mawmaw gave me. She didn’t have it written down, so I just had to watch and I wrote down what she did.
Let me know if you need a recipe and I’ll share mine.
You can use whatever kind of cornbread you like. My favorite is a little on the sweet side and large crumbed.
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of a buttered slice of that cornbread.
Drizzle on the Shagbark Hickory Syrup
Top with chopped pecans (pan roast these in butter for extra yummy)
Voila! The most delicious thing we’ve ever tasted. We only buy very small portions of ice cream so we don’t eat it too often.
Submit your ideas, too!
