Peruvian Caramel Sauce

"Goat's milk is traditionally used in this recipe but evaporated milk works well. This must cook a long time to ensure the fullest caramel flavor. Pair with fruit or ice cream"

    The flavor here was really excellent but I had a little trouble getting the right texture. I cooked the last step for about an hour and a half and it never really got to the syrup stage. Still delicious though! I used as a topping for butternut squash flan. Made for ZWT7.

    I am going to try this on my caramel rolls! I think I will try it out on our church members the next time it is our turn to do breakfast! Looks really good! I am a lover of goats milk so I will use that instead of the evaporated milk... Thanks for recipe I will rate it when I have a chance to make it up! :) Jelly

    Wow, incredible flavor Mary. Thank you so much for sharing this treasure. We enjoyed this rich, thick, creamy, sweet, smooth caramel sauce very much. This recipe was quick and really easy to make. Simply put, it was pure amborsia when served with ice cream. I'll be making this often.


I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
