- 1 Apple
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons of water
- 1 teaspon lemon juice
Wash and slice the apple into 16ths. Melt butter in sauce pan, be careful you do not burn it. Once the butter is melted, add the apple slices, suger, and water. You can add more water if you want thinner carmel, slightly less for thicker carmel. If you want to make more carmel add more butter and sugar, if you want sweeter carmel, add a little more sugar.
When apple is soft and the butter and sugar are carmelized, stir in lemon juice, then turn the heat off. Lay out some apple slices on a plate, add a scoop of ice cream and drizzle the carmel over top. For a hint of color a mint leaf would look great.
I cheated and used a basil leaf. Tanya, I need some of your mint leaves!
You can also use bananas instead of apples, its just as good.
