Tomorrow is Dulce de Leche Apples day. Almost every recipe you find for caramel apples calls for corn syrup. Big D has an unexplained aversion to that product, so I made a homemade variation, sometimes referred to as a “simple syrup.” If you think you might try tomorrow’s recipe, tonight is a good time to make this syrup and place in the fridge overnight. It will come out gooey – double dog daring you not to pull and play with it like you’re a kid. Go ahead . . . I won’t tell.
- Small – Medium Pot
- 1 1/4 cups white sugar
- 1/3 cup water
Simple syrup indeed. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. See you next time for Dulce de Leche Apples, and we’ll put this syrup to good use.
