'Lil mischief, family fun, and "Parties We Have Held"
After experiencing the “Maple Bacon Waffle a la Mode with Jameson caramel and Tahitian Vanilla gelato” at REAL Gastropub, I knew I had to try to make it. Since we had just-baked banana bread, I grilled slices of bread, topped them with Julie’s Organic Frozen Yogurt and this sauce. The Bomb!
For Jameson Salted Caramel Sauce
2 cup sugar
1 cup plus 4 tablespoons water
1 cup plus 4 tablespoons heavy cream
7-8 tablespoons Jameson (Irish whiskey)
1 T. sea salt
Add the sugar and water into a large pot on the stove. Over medium heat, bring water and sugar to a simmer and cook (do not stir, but you can shake the pan once or twice) until it becomes brown – about 40 minutes. Once the mixture has caramelized, whisk in the cream and Jameson. Place in a bowl and cool.
