Red Bell Pepper Caramel

Lifesize/Thomas Northcut


  • 1 1/2 Cup  minced bell pepper
  • 1 Cup  sugar
  • 1 Cup  apple cider
  • 2 Tablespoons  Grand Marnier
  • 3 Tablespoons  butter
  •   Vanilla ice cream, for serving

Bell peppers are naturally sweet, so why not use them in something sweet? I don’t think many people would think of extracting the sweetness into something like caramel, but the results are pretty phenomenal. 


Combine the peppers, sugar, and cider in a heavy saucepan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has caramelized. Remove from heat and whisk in the Grand Marnier and butter.

Scoop the ice cream into a bowl and place warm fresh berries and the red pepper caramel on top.
