To prevent apples from turning brown, dip apple wedges in a carbonated drink (which contain citric acid) such as ginger ale, lemon-lime soda (Sprite).
- 3/4 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/8 cup honey
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 3 1/2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
|In a medium heavy saucepan cook the sugar undisturbed over medium heat until it starts to melt - about 5 minutes. Once it starts melting stir constantly until smooth and completely dissolved. Add cream a little at a time (it will bubble up a lot as you add it so be careful). Continue stirring as you add the cream until it is smooth. Add the honey and salt and continue stirring and cooking over medium low heat for about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and add butter and vanilla. Stir well. Allow to cool some before dipping. Store leftovers in the refrigerator, covered.|
Makes about 1 cup.
