Number of serving: 3
1 Tablespoon Ground Ginger

1/2 Teaspoon Allspice

1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg

1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cloves

Pinch of Kosher Salt

1 Cup Heavy Cream

1 1/2 Cup Sugar

5 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter

1/4 Cup Corn Syrup

1/4 Cup Water


  • In a small saucepan, over medium heat, add the cream and first 6 ingredients. Whisk all ingredients until they are thoroughly combined in the cream, with no lumps.
  • Continue to whisk and bring the cream mixture up to a simmer. Simmer for 2 minutes then remove from heat.
  • In a medium to large saucepan Add the sugar, butter, corn syrup and water. Bring mixture to a boil and melt the sugar. While the sugar is melting, keep stirring the mixture.
  • Once it’s boiling, reduce the heat to medium high and cover the pan. Leave the pan covered for 3 – 5 minutes.
  • (It’s ok to lift the lid at 3 minutes to check on the mixture.) You want the color to be a nice golden caramel color.
  • Once you’ve got that color, add the cream mixture (everything is going to boil up – don’t panic).
  • Keep stirring everything for another 3 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a heat proof glass container (like a large measuring cup) until it cools.
  • Then pour into jars for giving…or keeping for yourself.
