Caramel Sauce

Yummmm……I can’t think of anyone I know who doesn’t like caramel. Use this sauce for desserts, ice cream, drinks…….


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1  1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 vanilla bean, split and scraped
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • dash of fresh lemon juice


Combine sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan, cooking without stirring over medium heat until it boils.  Wipe down the sides of the pot with a wet pastry brush. When sugar begins to brown, swirl CAREFULLY, until dark amber.

Remove from heat and slowly add the cream, stirring with a wooden spoon. Scrape the vanilla seeds from the pod and add the pod to the mixture.

Add the butter and lemon juice, stirring to combine.  Store in the fridge. When ready to serve, rewarm.

You will love this….I am thinking about a martini that could use this…..
