Port Caramel Sauce

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: Makes about 1 1/3 cups
  • FAST
  • MAKE-AHEAD
  1. 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  2. 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  3. 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon ruby port
  4. 1 cup heavy cream
  5. 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  1. In a heavy, medium saucepan, cook the granulated sugar over moderately high heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Continue to cook, without stirring, until an amber caramel forms, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the light brown sugar and stir until smooth. Return the caramel to the heat and carefully add the port; the caramel will harden slightly. Cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Add the cream and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Transfer the sauce to a pitcher and serve warm.
Make Ahead The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 1 month; rewarm. Notes Cooking Club Tip: A fast and easy way to make the port caramel sauce is to reduce the port in a saucepan until it has the consistency of syrup, then add store-bought caramel sauce and warm through. Serve With Chocolate Ganache Bread Pudding.
