Coconut Milk Caramel
Makes 1 cup
  • 1¾ cups plus 1 tablespoon (435 grams) full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup (75 grams) coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (28 grams) coconut butter
  • 1 teaspoon (4 grams) vanilla extract
  1. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, bring coconut milk and coconut sugar to a boil over medium heat, stirring frequently. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring frequently to prevent sugar from scorching, until mixture reduces by one-third to one-half, 40 to 45 minutes. (If thicker, caramelized sugar begins to form on sides or bottom of pan, use a whisk to reincorporate it.) Stir in coconut butter and vanilla until combined. Remove from heat. Let cool completely.
