Red Bell Pepper Caramel


Red Bell Pepper Caramel

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.

  • 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


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.
