Easy salt caramel sauce, a salty sweet, gooey, decadent caramel, is so easy to make and will outshine any store-bought brand!
Salt Caramel Everything
While caramel apples, or salt caramel cookies might come to mind first when you think of Salt Caramel, think again! It is said that Salt Caramel should be the next brown butter for savory dishes simply because of its classic umami flavor.
Salt Caramel On Meats
Try a little salt caramel in your next glazed chicken or sticky spicy hot chicken wings. The salty sweet flavor is perfect when added to chili peppers, roasted tomatoes and any favorite slow simmered savory sauce.
Everyone knows that pork lends itself to a sweet, sour and spicy hot sauce. Add salt caramel sauce to your favorite barbecue sauce for more flavor than you imagined. Don’t forget how fantastic those pork sauces will taste on duck meat.
Salt Caramel on Veggies
Imagine salt caramel on your Thanksgiving sweet potatoes. That’s right! Cut open a sweet potato, roast it in the oven for a bit, spread salt caramel into the par-baked sweet potatoes, sprinkle a smokey jalapeño powder on top and… Boom! Fantastic sweet potatoes for any meal, or maybe just alone.
Salt Caramel and Booze
Add a little bourbon or chili peppers to your salt caramel, and the possibilities are endless. Ever had a boozy salt caramel shake? OMG you don’t know what you’re missing! It’s a cocktail and dessert all in one!
