I wonder if I’m a condiment “enthusiast”. Every opportunity I have to make my own condiments, I just jump on it. It doesn’t matter if it’s sweet or savory, I want to make my own. My major concern when buying “stuff” at the store is what those big food companies put in their products. There are so many chemicals in food products these days and it’s basically for the sake of shelf life and cost of production. Who cares about our health? Well I sure do when it comes to mine…!
Now that I look back on what I wrote so far, I am not a condiment enthusiast but more a health conscious lady that happens to enjoy cooking! If I have to be “bad”, I’d rather to be bad as good as I can…let me explain. Eating a lot of sugar is bad for you but when you’re craving something sweet, why not have something that you made yourself. I enjoy my homemade vanilla ice cream and I also enjoy flavoring it with…caramel sauce! It is such a quick recipe to make at home and the result is better than the jars from the store. It tastes like my grandma used to make, with deep color and intense flavor.
You can do what you want but if you are interested in trying something that it is a homemade treat for your “sweet cravings” then you’ll enjoy this recipe. Just a little warning before you watch the video; the sugar will be extremely HOT which means you have to be very careful of not dropping any on your skin otherwise you’ll get yourself a nasty burn… not good… be very careful!
