Red Bell Pepper Caramel

Lifesize/Thomas Northcut

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.

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.
