Gourmet Salted Caramel Sauce

A Caramel Sauce Disappointment

To begin with I wanted a caramel sauce to compliment my Caramel Brownie Mugcake. Previously I had been using Walden Farms Sugar-Free Caramel Sauce. Truth be told though, like so many of their products it is just ho hum. I would describe it as having a somewhat runny consistency and texture. The taste is at best satisfactory and somewhat artificial tasting, but with no other alternatives, it temporarily filled the void.

Inspiration From A Fellow Blogger

I developed this gourmet salted caramel sauce after a fellow blogger, Katrin Nuernberger who writes under the name Sugar Free Londoner published and posted her 2 ingredient version. Her caramel sauce is remarkably good and made using full fat, unsweetened coconut milk. I encourage you to give hers a try as well. It is truly a game changer that is so very easy to make.

The Ultimate Gourmet Caramel Sauce

Katrin’s post introduced me to a sugar free alternative brand named Sukrin. Their fiber syrup and brown sugar alternative are what make this recipe possible. Those two ingredients along with that idea first introduced by Katrin inspired me to make the ultimate gourmet caramel sauce.

The creamy thick texture and flavor of this sauce to me is what caramel sauce is all about. This is a caramel sauce that is all at once buttery, salty and perfectly sweet with hints of vanilla lurking in the background. Like Katrin’s version this caramel sauce is also one that is very easy to make and keep on hand in the refrigerator.  You are going to love how outstandingly delicious it is with what ever you decide to pair it with. Make no mistake this sauce will deliver a flavor profile that just opens up and blooms in your mouth. When you try it I think you’ll agree that it’s a wonderful new addition for a low carb lifestyle. From my kitchen to yours, happy low carbing. Mike

Instructions
  1. Put your heavy cream, butter, fiber syrup, and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a rolling simmer and then turn down and continue to cook down to 1 cup. Keep on eye on your caramel mixture stirring every few minutes so that it doesn't boil over and make a mess. When you have your sauce reduced enough pull it from the heat and add in the vanilla and 1/4 tsp of the sea salt and adjust to suit your taste.
  2. Transfer the caramel sauce to a lidded container. Do not cover it just yet. Place the caramel sauce in the refrigerator to chill. When it is chilled put the cap on the sauce and use the sauce within 2 weeks. **The sauce will appear to be runny when you pull it from the heat because it's still very hot. It will get very think as it chills.
  3. Use sauce within 2 weeks.

**IMPORTANT: You can use the Sukrin Clear or the Sukrin Gold. It does not effect the taste at all. The only difference you'll see is in the color. If you use the gold you'll get a darker caramel color as opposed to a blonde colored caramel. Either way you will love the flavor. Say goodbye to Walden Farms.
