Caramel Syrup

 Today was the first official day of summer…the Summer Solstice…and we have already consumed more frozen treats, ice cream and frozen yogurt than we usually do the entire summer!  YUM!!  Homemade ice cream toppings always make it even more delicious so I am going to share a fantastic caramel syrup recipe.
If you have leftover caramel syrup, you can store it in the fridge in an adorable mason jar.  Just microwave it for a bit to warm it up.
Ingredients:  Brown sugar, granulated sugar, evaporated milk, vinegar,
butter, corn syrup, baking soda and vanilla.
Add 3/4 tablespoon of vinegar to 3/4 cup of evaporated milk and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
While waiting, put the sugars, butter and corn syrup in a large pot.  Start to warm over medium heat.  Once the 5 minutes is up, add the evaporate milk mixture and the baking soda.  The mixture foams up so make sure your pot is large enough.
Bring to a boil over medium heat and then turn down to low.  Cook on low for about 8 minutes stirring constantly.  I used a flat bottom wooden spoon to stir and scrape the bottom.  As the caramel cooks, it turns into a lovely golden color.  It will darken more when the vanilla is added.
Remove from heat and add the vanilla.  Mix well.
It is pretty much irresistible!
