How to make Keto Caramel

Depending on how lengthy you cook dinner the caramel, you may management the viscosity from a liquid that’s grea4t for making caramel flavored drinks to a thicker sauce for drizzling over ice cream to a really thick caramel used for making candies and desserts. Like we mentioned, tremendous versatile.

This could be the best caramel to make too. All you want is a heavy-bottomed pot. We love this 2.5-quart cast-iron saucepot. Cast-iron sauce pots are uncommon and we couldn’t justify a $200+ pot from a higher-end cast-iron maker however we stumbled throughout this one on Amazon and we find it irresistible!

Here’s the right way to make sugar-free caramel syrup:

  1. Place all the components in a 2.5-quart heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high warmth. Bring to a boil whereas whisking sometimes. Once boiling, cut back to a simmer whereas stirring continuously.
  2. Depending on how thick you need your caramel to be, cook dinner till the combination is caramel coloured and resembles one of many following states:
  • For a skinny caramel syrup – cook dinner till the sauce barely coats the again of a spoon and simply drips off. The sauce will likely be lighter in coloration. You’re aiming for a consistency of espresso syrup, the type they've at espresso retailers.
  • For a thicker caramel sauce – cook dinner till a medium golden coloration kinds and the sauce coats the again of a spoon with out simply dripping off. It ought to look glassy.
  • For a really thick caramel – for making more durable candies and desserts – cook dinner till a darker amber coloration kinds and the caramel pulls away from the perimeters of the pot when stirred. It ought to coat the again of a spoon in a thick coat.

***The caramel sauce will thicken much more when it cools so watch out to not overcook. If you do overcook it, you may nonetheless put it aside so long as it’s not burnt. To save a caramel that’s too thick, carry it again to a simmer over medium warmth and add a bit extra coconut milk. That ought to do the trick.

Granulated Allulose – a straight-up substitute for normal white sugar. It will get sticky identical to sugar and doesn’t crystalize so you may serve the caramel chilly or refrigerate it till prepared to make use of.

Monk Fruit – we aren’t tremendous followers, possibly it’s simply us, however we don’t look after monk fruit in any recipes.
