So it’s not really caramel, not the traditional high fructose corn syrup variety you’re used to seeing on grocery store shelves..but it will give you that taste and effect! Give this recipe a try, it’s quite amazing! It’s the coming of apple season after all, and this is a great way to enjoy apples!! Dip in or drizzle over homemade ice cream or organic Greek yogurt! Remember it is sugar, although natural sugar. Only have a little bit if weight loss or overcoming disease is your concern!
2 Tbsp honey of your choice*
4 Tbsp organic butter, halved
1/4 c unsweetened apple cider
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
About 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
Splash of vanilla extract
1.) Melt 2 Tbsp butter in a sauce pan on Medium-Low heat. When it is melted, add the cinnamon and vanilla. Then, add the cider, and bring up to a simmer.
2.) Add honey, lemon, and the rest of the butter. Simmer, stirring constantly, making sure to scrape up any spots that might start to stick. Once it gets nice and thick, take off the heat and serve!
*You can make this recipe using flavored honeys, I did it the a second time using a huckleberry honey we bought while in Colorado for a Maximized Living seminar. If you don’t eat/like honey, you can use raw brown sugar or grade B maple syrup for a similar effect, but you might have to adjust the proportions of the other ingredients.
