The Apples are Delicious!

Take Advantage of Them with a Little Caramel Sauce

Apples, apples, apples! They take me back to my childhood in Central Washington’s apple orchards!  And September is the perfect time to try a new recipe with this versatile fruit.  I love caramel with apples, but wanted to keep this recipe dairy free, so I played with my caramel sauce recipe. I think you’ll like the result!

Dairy-Free Caramel Topping

You’ll Need:

  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 2 TBSP water
  • 1/8 tsp Red Himalayan Salt
  • 2 tsp fresh squeezed organic lemon juice
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk (in the can — shake it well before opening)
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Method:

  • In a heavy sauce pan (I like to use cast iron for jobs like this) bring the sugar, water, lemon juice and salt to a boil.  Boil for one minute to dissolve the sugar
  • Add the coconut milk and vanilla, and bring to a boil again
  • Continue to boil for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally and scraping the sides of the pan
  • When the sauce gets darkened and thickened, remove from the heat and cool
  • This sauce will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks
  • Sprinkle lightly with Red Himalayan Salt for a salted caramel taste!
