Homemade Caramel Sauce Recipe

I had some extra milk the other day and found this recipe in "Home Cheese Making" by Ricki Carroll. I tweaked it a bit to make it healthier. It is easy to make, just takes awhile to simmer it down to the right consistency. This recipe made nearly a half gallon of pretty thick caramel sauce. I used sucanat, and skimmed milk, making it low fat and healthier in the sugar department. It is so yummy on ice cream, but my favorite is putting it on French toast. It is super yummy to dip apple slices in, too.

Homemade Caramel Sauce:
2 Tbl organic cornstarch or arrowroot powder
1/4 tsp baking soda (make sure it is aluminum-free)
3 quarts milk (I used skimmed raw cow's milk)
3 cups sucanat

1. In a 4 quart pot, mix together the cornstarch and soda in 1 cup of the milk, stir well.

2. Add in the rest of the milk and sucanat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook, stirring often, until it is the consistency of caramel sauce.

3. Pour into clean jars. Store in fridge.

This makes for a unique gift that people love :)

It is delicious! I've had it in my fridge for 3 weeks so far and it is still good :) I'm going to try freezing a little and see what the results are.

Scattered before him, dry white bones of the bold.The dragon is bored dealing with such thieves, Walk along that walkway watching the material for nuggets.

The caramel sauce looks so yummy!
If using sugar would it be three cups?

Cheesemakin' Mamma said...

Yes, Sandra. It would be the same amount if you used regular sugar :)
