Low FODMAP Caramel Sauce
This FODMAP Caramel Sauce is only 3 ingredients, naturally lactose-free, perfectly sweetened and super flavorful with a nice silky texture.
- 200 gr granulated sugar
- 100 gr butter (at room temperature and cut in small pieces)
- 120 ml lactose free heavy cream
- 1 tsp salt
Heat the granulated sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown liquid as you continue to stir. Be careful not to burn.
Once the sugar is completely melted, immediately add the butter. Watch out in this step because the caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added.
Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely melted. If you notice the butter separating, remove from heat and whisk to combine it again.
Very slowly drizzle in the lactose-free heavy cream while stirring. Allow the mixture to boil for 1 minute. Because the heavy cream is colder than the caramel, the mixture will rapidly bubble when added.
Remove the caramel sauce from heat and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt. Allow it to slightly cool down before using. The Caramel sauce thickens as it cools.
Covered the caramel sauce can be stored for up to 1 month in the refrigerator. You can reheat in the microwave or on the stove for the desired consistency.
