Red Wine Caramel
- TOTAL TIME: 15 MIN
- SERVINGS: makes about 3/4 cup
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 3/4 cup red wine
- In a medium saucepan, bring the granulated sugar and water to a boil over moderately high heat, washing down the side of the pan with a moistened pastry brush. Cook without stirring until a pale-amber caramel forms, about 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully add the red wine. Cook, stirring to dissolve the hardened caramel, until it is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes. Transfer the caramel to a pitcher and serve warm.
Make Ahead The red wine caramel can be refrigerated for up to 1 month. Bring it to room temperature before serving. Serve With Sweet Potato Tart with Red Wine Caramel
