When life gives you a giant plaster statue of Jack Daniels, you should make Bourbon Syrup with Pecans.
(And never go to another silent auction again.)
Bourbon Syrup with Pecans
1 1/2 cups good maple syrup
1/2 cup bourbon (Jack Daniels, preferred since he is now the ambassador of my living room)
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 ish cup of chopped pecans
Bring the maple syrup and bourbon to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes. Quickly add the cream and stir to combine. The bubbling will reduce immediately, add the pecans, turn down the heat and simmer on low for several more minutes.
Serve warm on waffles or ice cream.
Or on the rocks. Obviously, a woman with a 7 foot replica of moonshiner makes no judgments.
