We made another topping recipe from the Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams at Home Cookbook. Jay really likes this Honey Butterscotch Sauce. It has a very strong honey flavor, and is almost floral. Jeni explains in the recipe that the flavor depends on the kind and darkness of the honey you choose. I honestly know nothing about the differences between types of honey, so we guessed on which honey to buy at the grocery store. We went with Kelley’s Texas Country Style Honeywhich is a grade A honey.
Honey Butterscotch Sauce
For this recipe you will need:
1 medium size heavy-bottomed pan
1 1/2cups heavy cream
For this recipe you combine 1cup of sugar with 2/3cup of honey in a medium
saucepan and heat over medium heat until the sugar is melted. While we were working on this step it was hard to tell when the sugar was melted or dissolved. I thought the mixture would become clear when it was melted, but it never did.
Once it begins to boil you stop mixing and just swirl the pan occasionally. You need to watch it closely now, not only by color but also by the smell. It is hard to tell when it begins to caramelize.
