    Um…I bought a pint of sea salt caramel gelato and I’m thinking about spooning the sauce on top of that. TOO MUCH? NO.

    I was JUST at Tj’s and picked up a jar of this caramel yesterday. And thought of you when I bought it. the IRONY that you just posted this. I guess I am psychic when it comes to sugar :)

    The Pioneer Woman has an amazing and easy recipe for caramel sauce. If you’ve got half and half, you’re in business! Otherwise, sad day.

    HA! I first learned of this delicious sauce from YOUR blog…. it is now on my “forbidden” list because I will eat spoonfuls of it until it looks just like the picture above.

    A problem is also living in a country where Trader Joe’s, and by extension this product, don’t exist.

    I would dice up a green apple, sprinkle with cinnamon. Microwave for a minute to soften it up. Add it to that caramel jar, had a scoop of almond butter and top with granola. I usually do that in empty almond butter jars.. but a caramel jar I’m jealous right now!

      That sounds amazing, Fallon! I would add a small scoop of vanilla ice cream, too! Why not? ;-)

    It’s even better as a dip for pretzel rods. As a result, I have a jar that looks just like yours :)

    I bought that jar of caramel today! I am so excited to try it! I literally came in the house (after sneaking it in the cart), dug it out of the bag, grabbed a spoon… and then my significant other caught me and instructed me that eating anything directly our of a jar was unsanitary, disgusting, and she would judge me fore the rest of my life for it….. Just don’t tell her about the almond butter jar… or the nutella jar… or the… nevermind.

    Keep the jar and make your own! When I make caramel, I heat the sugar and water with lime jucie (to prevent crystals) until I get that beautiful amber color. Then I add butter first, to get that brown butter nutty flavor (toffee), next the heavy cream. I have add bacon fat with the butter to the caramel to drizzle on my Bacon/Pretzel Baklava.

    WOW …. lots of genius ideas here! Next trip to TJ, I will search high and low for this. To try. Hopefully, TJ’s caramel is made with butter, AND real cream. If not, goes back on the shelf. Cannot be called caramel without those mandatory ingredients.
    P.S. Jason …. love your (please-please ….. skip bacon grease/ugh) idea. Much less expensive too!

    Everyone …. when making caramel …. #1 tip …. be patient. Takes time. Honest-to-goodness, very worth it. Smile folks!
