Caramel Lemon Syrup Recipe 

Caramel Lemon Syrup Recipe.Caramel is a sauce that has the same consistency of honey. It is made with sugar, water and lemon! It can be use for: French toast, pancake, ice-cream topping, whatever you like. It s very delicious, I used it the other day on top of my Panna Cotta, my student at my cooking class were very happy of the result.

Ingredients:

• 250 grams of sugar

• 175 grams lemon juice

• 5 grams lemon zest

• A sprinkle of salt

• A sprinkle of love

Method:

• Bring a pot and warm it up on a medium heat. When it’s warm add 2 tablespoon of sugar and wait until it dissolve.

• When the sugar is dissolved mix it with a wooden spoon and add the rest of the sugar and let it melt without mixing. It had to melt by itself. It’s very important.

• In the meantime, warm up the lemon juice in the microwave or on another pot. Add the warm juice at the sugar completely dissolved. When you do this operation be very careful at the hot steam which will produce. Let it boil now for just one minute and turn the heat off and move the pot away from the stove. Keep mixing for few minutes until all the sugar is dissolved and add the salt and the lemon zest. Mix again for few minutes. Your lemon caramel is ready for your dessert. Note: use a tall pot to make the caramel.

• Buon Appetito.
