Browning Sugar Or Browning Sauce (quick and easy)
This browning sugar recipe creates a rich, flavorful browning sauce that adds a molasses-like, smoky taste to many Caribbean dishes. It also acts like a natural food coloring (it’s brown though!)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup boiling water
Add sugar to heavy pot on low heat.
When the sugar completely melts, stir more often to ensure even heating.
When the sugar develops a dark brown to almost black color, remove from heat.
Add a tablespoon of boiling water CAREFULLY and stir.
Continue adding water until the browning sauce reaches the desired consistency.
Cool and bottle. Or use immediately in Caribbean dishes.
- If the sugar begins to smoke before it develops its dark color, remove from heat until it stops. Then, place on stove and continue the steps.
- If the sugar clumps when water is added, heat the sauce until the clumps dissolve.
