With Toasted Pecans and Caramel Sauce
For anyone who has yet to thumb through the dessert section of this book- I suggest it. Full of mostly simple desserts that seem perfect for summer nights. Now that I have some legitimate grilling under my belt, I think I should probably treat myself with a Sundae.
I’ve made my own caramel a few times now and I’m getting better at it. I should know not to take pictures too close to the optimal caramel point though- this was on the edge- almost too done.
I should also know to use a bigger pot than you think you are going to need when you add the cream.
It really bubbles up- and the last thing anyone wants is this all over their range- or their floor- ore their bare summer foot….
Disaster averted. Stir- add butter- everything is better with butter- even caramel.
Put in a handy jar for later use.
I should also note that the blackberries are sitting in a bit of sugar- just waiting to be united.
Scoop some delicious ice cream in bowls. (If it was Thomas Keller you would have made your own- I sort of appreciate the easy way out.) Pour your caramel on top.
Follow up with the Blackberries.
You will notice I did skip the whipped cream- I wasn’t feeling quite so indulgent- still really good. I’ve actually been eating it for three days. oops.
Who knew? Blackberries and Caramel? Never had that combination before- I’m sure I will again… probably tomorrow.
