How to make vegan salted caramel sauce
- white sugar
- vegan butter
- full-fat coconut milk
- sea salt
Place the sugar in a heavy-based pan.
Melt over a low heat, stirring all the time.
Do not inhale the vapour. Don’t ask me how I know. :-/
Don’t let it burn!
It should take around 15 minutes to get to this stage.
Add the vegan butter/margarine, and stir well until it has melted. You will notice that the butter/marg has a lot of water, don’t worry, it will incorporate.
(Yeah, I know it looks like the Quatermass Experiment.)
Slowly pour in the coconut milk, whisking all the time. Don’t get spattered by hot caramel sauce!
Continue to whisk until the butter/marg and milk have completely incorporated.
Let the sauce boil for a minute or so, until it has thickened.
Remove from the heat, and stir in the sea salt. Pour into a sterilised jar or bottle.
