Caramel Sauce Recipe

Salted Cape Caramel Sauce

Salted Cape Caramel Sauce

This warm and salty sauce is delightful with poached pears or for dipping apples on a cool day.

Serves: 4, 4 oz. jars

caramel-collageIngredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup organic whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp salted butter
  • 1 Tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Tsp sea salt
  • 4,  4-ounce jars with lids, cleaned and dried

Directions:

Stir to combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and swirl the pan until it turns a medium amber color (should take 12 to 15 minutes).

Remove the pan from heat and pour in the cream and stir. Whisk in the butter, vanilla and sea salt until everything is smooth. It should be the color of caramel. Divide into jars or prepare to serve with Poached Pears.

The sauce must be kept refrigerated and it will stay fresh for 2 to 3 weeks.

Notes:

  • If sugar crystals gather along the sides of the pan during the cooking process, you can use a pastry brush dipped in water to brush the sugar down the sides of the pan so that it becomes incorporated into the boiling mixture.
  • The sauce must be kept refrigerated and it will stay fresh for 2 to 3 weeks.
  • This also makes a lovely gift for friends over the holidays.

This crock pot version is a holiday twist on one of our morning favorites.

Serves: 4 to 8

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp grated ginger root
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 4 firm, organic Bartlett or Bosc pears
  • Cinnamon, for garnish

Directions:

Stir together the sugar, ginger and butter and place in the crock pot.

Peel the pears, cut in half lengthwise, and use a melon baller to remove the core.  Then remove the stem and trim the bottom.

Gently toss the pears with the sugar mixture in the slow cooker, and layer them cut side down.

Cook on high for 2 hours or until the pears are tender when pierced with a knife. Spoon the sauce over the top pears once during cooking.

Transfer the pears to a bowl.

Prepare the Salted Cape Caramel Sauce Recipe.

Place 1-2 pear halves per person on individual plates. Spoon a bit of sauce over the pears, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve warm.
