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.

Ingredients

  • 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.
 

Caramel Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Caramel Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
