There are scientific & unscientific ways to make caramels and caramel sauces. The problem is, because a lot of sauce recipes are scientific (take the temperature here, check how many molecules there are etc), it has made making caramel sauces intimidating to most. In fact, caramel sauces are one of the simplest things to make and before you know it you’ll be making them in your sleep.
For this sauce, add the butter, sugar & golden syrup to a clean frying pan & allow to melt over a medium heat. Feel free to stir the sauce as much as you think it needs with a wooden spoon. You do after all want to ensure all the elements combine.
Once all melted, allow to bubble away for 4-5 minutes but still stir occasionally. At this point, add the cream, stir through & cook for a further 2-3 minutes. Finally, add the ginger & salt and allow to bubble away for a further 3 minutes. You’re done!
Either decant into a bowl or leave where it is.
`Apples and Blackberries
Core the apples & slice into chunks. Add to a bowl with the blackberries, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla, nutmeg, coconut oil, Very Lazy ginger paste & sugar. Mix through till all ingredients are evenly dispersed.
Pour the mixture into individual baking tins or a larger baking tin. Cover with the puff pastry or blind baked vegan crust. Lightly brush milk over the puff pastry & make sure the edges are tucked in.
Bake for approximately 18-25 minutes (this will depend on your oven) at 190 degrees Celsius or until the pastry is golden & the fruit mixture is bubbling up around the edges.
