Buttermilk Salted Caramel Sauce / Slani karamel umak sa kiselim mlijekom

You might be thinking that I am crazy for putting buttermilk in a caramel sauce. And, you know, I understand your sentiments. But, this sauce is da bomb! Don’t be appalled by buttermilk and please just give it a try.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields about 1 and ½ cups / 1.32 EUR)

1 cup sugar (0.13. EUR)

2 tbsp honey (0.27 EUR)

5 tbsp butter (0.67 EUR)

½ cup buttermilk (0.20 EUR)

½ tsp baking soda (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

Good pinch of salt (0.01 EUR)

METHOD:

Add sugar, honey, butter, buttermilk and baking soda to a medium sized pot on medium heat. Be sure to use a bigger pot because things will get bubbly and that is going to happen fast. Once the caramel starts simmering and gets bubbly, cook while stirring frequently for about 5-10 minutes until golden-brown. Be sure not to let the caramel out of your sight, as it can get from a bit bubbly to an overflowing sticky kitchen disaster in a matter of seconds. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and salt.

The caramel will thicken significantly and get a bit darker as it cools down. To soften it up again, just reheat briefly in a microwave. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for a couple of weeks. Use on cakes, ice cream, pancakes, cookies, in your lattes or just devour it with a spoon, straight up from the jar.

Možda mislite da sam skroz pukla kada sam stavila kiselo mlijeko u karamelu. I da, stvarno shvaćam kako se tu možda i naziru neke konture ludila, ali ova karamela je bomba! Nemojte da vas ideja kiselog mlijeka užasne i zgrozi, nego samo budite hrabri i imajte malo vjere. Obećavam, nećete požaliti.

SASTOJCI:

(Za oko 1 i ½ šalicu / 9,76 kn)

1 šalica šećera (1,00 kn)

2 žlice meda (2,00 kn)

5 žlica maslaca (5,00 kn)

½ šalice kiselog mlijeka (1,50 kn)

½ žličice sode bikarbone (0,05 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Šećer, med, maslac, kiselo mlijeko i sodu bikarbonu stavite u srednje veliki lonac na srednje jakoj vatri. Svakako uzmite malo veći lonac nego što mislite da je potrebno jer će se karamela uspjeniti i to će se desiti jako brzo. Nakon što karamela počne krčkati i postane pjenasta, kuhajte ju uz učestalo miješanje 5-10 minuta dok ne dobije zlatno-smeđu boju. Nemojte ni na sekundu ispustiti karamelu iz vidokruga jer za tren možete imati ljepljivu katastrofu po cijeloj kuhinji. Maknite karamelu sa vatre i umiješajte u nju vaniliju i sol.

Karamela će se još dodatno zgusnuti i potamnjeti kako se bude hladila. Ako ju želite ponovo omekšati, samo ju mrvicu zagrijte u mikrovalnoj. Čuvajte u hladnjaku u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi nekoliko tjedana. Upotrijebite za torte, sladoled, palačinke, kekse, u kavi ili na nju jednostavno navalite žlicom onako iz tegle.
