Salted Spiced Caramel Sauce
Serves: 2.5 cups
Salted Spiced Caramel Sauce is delicious for dipping apples, over ice cream, or drizzled over apple pie.
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • ½ cup heavy cream (warmed in the microwave)
  • ¼ cup COLD butter
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ¾ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  1. Heat cream in the microwave for one minute. Add butter to a heatproof bowl and place a sieve over the bowl. Measure out maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and spices. Set aside.
  2. Place the sugar in a heavy pot and pour water over. Cover with a lid and cook over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil. When boiling, remove lid and continue to cook until the sugar turns a golden amber color, about 4 to 7 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and slowly whisk in warm cream. Continue to whisk until smooth. Pour through sieve over cold butter. Let sit for a minute and then add maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and spices. Whisk until butter has melted and everything is smooth.
  4. Pour into jars.
