When I was a kid I loved caramel.
I would get caramel apples and just lick the caramel off, because I’m weird like that. I couldn’t be bothered with the boring and only nutritious component of the caramel apple. One time I tried to get my brother to eat the apple after I licked all the caramel off (because I’m gross like that). But instead of grossing you out, I should probably be trying to get you psyched on this awesome caramel recipe.
It’s dairy free and sweetened with raw, local honey. It’s super simple and only requires you to stir it around a bit.
- Combine all ingredients over medium to medium high heat.
- Stir with a wooden spoon.
- Let it simmer for a long time. Like, at least 10 minutes.
- Stir some more.
- Stir for five or ten more minutes. It WILL thicken but it takes a while.
- Add the ghee at the end.
It will thicken more as it cools. You can top ice cream with it, dip apples in it, drizzle it on pie, drizzle it on yourself. Whatever you want.
It tastes just like the real thing.
