We were hit with a beautiful snow storm yesterday. I love it when that happens on a weekend. It’s a great time to wrap up in a blanket with a book or get creative in the kitchen. I don’t tend to spend a lot of time making desserts. The cookies in the cookie jar or the ice cream in the fridge is usually dessert in our house. But with this new blog I’ve been wanting to try out some new things.
This recipe has three ingredients I already had in the house and was a perfect choice for a snowed in afternoon. This is adapted from a blackberry recipe in Bon Appetit.
Mixed Berry Caramel Sauce
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
12 oz. frozen mixed berries, thawed a bit
Cook sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat, without stirring, until it begins to turn golden brown around the edges. Stir to incorporate melted sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until all sugar is melted and caramel turns a deep amber color, 6-8 minutes.
Remove pan from heat and carefully add vinegar to caramel (mixture will bubble vigorously and seize), then add berries. Return pan to medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until seized caramel is melted and berries are softened, 6-8 minutes. Let cool.
Pour over good vanilla ice cream.
