Miso Caramel by theminx

WHO: theminx is a food blogger based in Baltimore.
WHAT: An umami-rich caramel sauce enriched with a dollop of miso.
HOW: A quick simmer of sugar and water followed by a generous splash of cream gives you caramel -- whisk in the miso and you're done.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The genius of this recipe is its versatility -- yes, you can spoon it over ice cream (or eat it from a spoon), but why not use it to glaze roasted pork or fish?

Easy as 1, 2, 3: just heavy cream, white miso paste, and sugar.

Pick a large, heavy saucepan to prevent burning or splattering while the caramel simmers.

In goes the water -- you're already nearly done.

Bring the sugar and water to a boil, no stirring required. Do keep an eye on it, though: an unwatched caramel will scorch!

When you reach a "deep golden brown," it's time to pull the caramel off the heat.

Whoosh! Don't worry -- keep whisking and it will all straighten out.

With the caramel sauce smoothed out, it's time to add the miso paste. Whisk vigorously to dissolve it.

Add instant umami to your desserts -- or just eat it from a spoon.
