Posted in reply to a request. Haven't made it, but I know I will!


  1. In a medium saucepan combine sugar, syrup, and butter.
  2. Cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until sugar has dissolved and mixture comes to a full rolling boil. Allow to boil, without stirring, for exactly 1 minute; remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. In another bowl or large measuring cup, combine evaporated milk, baking soda, and vanilla. Stir into the slightly cooled sauce.
  4. Pour into jars, cover, and refrigerate.
  5. Place jar in a pan of warm water to reheat.
