Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Is caramel the new hot fudge? It is in my kitchen! This is easy to make and really good. Goes great on some ice cream, but I bet it would be tasty on other things too. Maybe some banana bread or pound cake? Yum!

Tip: You may want to use a larger pan because this does tend to bubble up when boiling and when you add the cream. Much easier clean up that way!


1 c
2 c
2 tsp
freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 c

1In a heavy saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; add sugar and lemon juice and cook stirring constantly 6 to 8 minutes or until mixture turns a deep caramel color.
2Gradually add cream and cook stirring constantly for 1 to 2 minutes or until smooth. Remove from heat and cool.
3Pour into hot sterilized jars and seal. Chill.
4Can be stored in refrigerator for about a week. Can heat sauce briefly in microwave also.
