Do Strawberry and Caramel go Together?

Strawberry and caramel.

Caramel is one of the most versatile ingredients around, and it can certainly be used with strawberries in a number of ways, such as sauces and shortcakes. In the next section, we will explore a couple of dishes that you can prepare using strawberries and caramel.

Dishes that You Can Prepare using Strawberries and Caramel

Sauce with strawberries and caramel:

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 0.5 cup of sugar (granulated)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • one lemon’s juice

Instructions:

  • Prepare two half-pint jars and a hot water bath canner.
  • Strawberry leaves and hulls should be removed. Puree the berries in a blender until they are completely smooth. Remove from the equation.
  • In a small sauce pan, combine the sugar and water. Simmer for 10-15 minutes over medium-high heat, until the sugar reaches 250°F and darkens to the color of a tarnished copper penny.
  • Instead of stirring the simmering syrup, grab the pot’s handle and gently swirl it to move things around.
  • Remove the pot from the heat once the syrup has reached 250°F and whisk in the strawberry puree and lemon juice. Take care since it will bubble, splatter, and look to seize up.
  • Return the pot to the heat and stir the puree into the sugar until it becomes a smooth sauce. Continue to swirl and boil until the sauce reaches a temperature of 218°F.
  • Remove the caramel from the heat and pour it into the jars, leaving 1/2 inch of headspace. Clean the rims, put on the lids and rings, and process for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath canner.

Instructions:

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large mixing basin or the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cocoa powder, salt, and baking powder.

Combine the chocolate chips and buttermilk in a mixing bowl until the dough almost comes together. The dough is going to be moist.
  • Pat dough into a 3/4-inch thick circle on a floured board with floured hands. With a 2 1/2-inch round cutter, cut out 8 biscuits and lay each on an ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter and season with salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 350°F and bake for 15 minutes, or as long as it takes for the cake to become firm. Let it cool on a wire rack.

Fill a mason jar with each biscuit foundation, then evenly distribute quartered strawberries among the jars. 1/2 cup caramel whipped cream is set aside for garnish, and the remaining cream is divided among the jars and put on top of the strawberries. In each jar, place a biscuit top on top of the whipped cream. Finish with halved strawberries and 1 tablespoon whipped cream on each biscuit top.
