Apple Cider Caramel Sauce

Caramel and apples seem to be the perfect combo – so I decided to whip up a pot of Apple Cider Caramel Sauce. It turned out to be a fabulous flavor combo of sweet, tart and warm spice. Totally perfect to drizzle over top ice cream, a slice of apple pie, and even apple slices for a healthy-yummy kid-friendly snack. Get my recipe..

I was playing around with caramel sauce for a homemade apple pie when I created this recipe. And soon followed a recipe for Caramel Apple Pie which turned me into an Apple Pie-lover.

This recipe is easy, and dairy-free. The cider adds much of the natural sweetness and flavor. Do not use apple juice for this recipe. Only apple cider will create the rich, aromatic flavor or fresh-pressed apples and sticky salty caramel.

Onto the recipe!..

Vegan Apple Cider Caramel sauce

3/4 cup apple cider
1/2 cup vegan shortening or vegan butter (or sub with whatever butter you have in your fridge)
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1-3 Tbsp corn starch (add more for a thicker caramel, less for a watery caramel)
1 tsp ginger powder
Dash or two of cinnamon
2 Tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt (opt’l)

1. Dissolve the corn starch into the cold apple cider.

2. Add the cider/starch to a sauce pot with the other ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil – stirring constantly. When the bubbling becomes intense, reduce to medium heat and continue stirring until the mixture thickens a bit. Optional: whip with beater for a few minutes.

3. Remove from heat. Pour the sauce into a bowl
