Homemade honey caramel sauce

This is a great sauce. There are a range of reasons why people like to lower the cane sugar in their diets. I happen to just really like the taste of honey. There’s a range of dishes this would be great with. I made it to serve with my steamed fig puddings. I think fig and honey are a match made in heaven. But it would be amazing over ice cream, in a banana split with nuts, or on some other fruit based desserts and puddings. I can think of pear and apple desserts that it would be great with.

Makes approximately 1 ½ cups

¾ cup mildly flavoured honey
¾ cup cream
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt

Place the honey in a small saucepan and boil until it reaches the soft ball stage or 115oC. At this point, when a little of the syrup is dropped into cold water in will form a soft, flexible ball. If you remove the ball from water, it will flatten like a pancake after a few moments in your hand.

Add the cream to the hot honey, be careful, it will bubble up. Then stir in the butter and salt.

Store in a covered container in the fridge.
