Sweet Essentials: Homemade Caramel Sauce
Andy Anderson !
Once you make this yummy treat, it can be used in so many ways: You could drizzle a bit over a nice warm piece of apple pie, or you could spoon some over a nice big scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s up to you.
Caramel sauce is usually made with milk or heavy cream; however, I find that the use of evaporated milk gives the sauce flavor notes that are more earthy.
So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
How to Make Sweet Essentials: Homemade Caramel Sauce
- Chef’s Tip: Do your absolute best to keep any of the melting sugars from splashing up on the sides of the pan. Those hardened sugar crystals can give the caramel a grainy texture. When I see them forming on the sides, I’ll take a small damp brush, and brush them until they dissolve back into the sugars.
- Store the syrup in a tightly sealed jar.
