How to make this recipe

  1. In a small saucepan, warm the rum with the raisins. Remove from the heat and let soak for 20 minutes.

  2. In a heavy medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water and cook over moderate heat until a deep amber caramel forms. Remove from the heat. Slowly and carefully add a little of the heavy cream to stop the cooking. Add the remaining heavy cream and stir in the raisins and rum. Serve warm.

Make Ahead

The sauce can be refrigerated for 1 week. Reheat gently, stirring occasionally, before serving.
