Homemade Caramel Sauce



I recently decided to start experimenting with candy and other sorts of confections. Yes another mania to add to the rest friends~;o) One of the first recipes I decided to try was for Homemade Caramel dipping Sauce. The results were mouth watering! This sauce is fantastic for dipping fruits and drizzling on top of ice-cream! Let me share the recipe with you:

Ingredients:

  1. 1/2 cup butter
  2. 1 1/2 cups brown sugar (we like dark brown sugar best!)
  3. 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  4. 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  6. 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Instructions:

  1. In a 2-quart saucepan, melt butter on low heat.
  2. Add brown sugar, corn syrup, and milk, stirring to combine. Increase heat to medium (or perhaps just below medium).
  3. Stir constantly until mixture comes to a boil.* Use a spoon that won't melt -- the caramel gets pretty hot!
  4. Remove from heat and whisk in the vanilla and cinnamon.
  5. Serve warm or cold with apple slices, or drizzle over ice cream.

This recipe is very easy to follow and will yield approximately 3-4 cups of Caramel Sauce. I was able to easily fill up three 8 oz. jars in one batch! These also make great food gifts, enjoy!

We Love Tarpon Springs!





This past weekend we decided to leave town for the day (well some what leave town~:o) If your ever in Central Florida and you have the time, visit Tarpon Springs! This small tourist strip is especially known for their Sponge Docks, (The BEST sponges on the planet people, I'm not kidding!) variety of Greek Restaurants, (Including Hellas yummy Greek Bakery shop) The Fudge Factory (best fudge on the planet too~;o) a small Aquarium where you can visit the sea animals, and many other personal small shops and boutiques! When I visit Tarpon Springs I always try to remember to pick up some homemade soap, all natural sponges, fudge, and seashells! There is also a sweet little Trolley that gives tours of the Tarpon Springs vicinity and talks much about the history of the town too! Here are a few pictures I took while we were there. It is definitely worth checking out! Until next time friends!
