Taste-bud Journey: Caramelized Apples

During the pandemic, I am taking taste-bud journeys as I self-isolate rather than physical journeys. Here is my adapted recipe for Caramelized Apples. It was mostly inspired by a Food Network recipe found on the web. The link to that recipe is listed near the end of this blog.

FYI - This recipe is super sweet. Thank goodness I had very tart apples to kind of neutralize the over-the-top sweetness!




  • 1 cup of tightly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • Sliced and peeled apples


  • Step 1: In a large saucepan, add brown sugar, heavy whipping cream, salt, and unsalted butter.

  • Step 2: Whisk this together on medium heat until all the butter is melted. This will take about three minutes.

  • Step 3: Lower the heat to low. At the four-minute point, add the vanilla extract. Cook on low for one more minute.

  • Step 4: Remove from heat. Stir in the sliced apples. 

  • Step 5: Put on the lid. Cool for a bit at room temperature. Then, place that pot of caramelized applies in the refrigerator. 

  • Step 6: After it has had a chance to solidify a bit, dish out a bowl of apples and caramel sauce and enjoy!
