Caramel Pear Buttermilk Pancake Syrup and Sauce Mix

If you like caramel apples, you'll love this--caramel with just a kiss of fruit.

  • What does this taste like? It's a cousin to a caramel apple. A pear is a little sweeter than an apple. I love the orchard touch to the caramel. 
  • Does it really taste like caramel? Cooking intensifies the caramel. The more you cook it, the thicker and darker it gets.
  • How do I know when I've cooked it enough? Just watch the color. If it's blonde, the caramel will be mild, and the pear will come through.  If you get it as dark as the picture, it's caramel--and thick like a sauce, not a syrup.
  • Should I serve it warm? It will pour better if it's warm. Warm over pancakes, it's phenomenal.  
  • It sounds like a dessert sauce, is it? Yes, definitely. For a real treat, drizzle it over pancakes and then top it with flavored whipped cream.
  • Is it hard to make? It's easy. Just add water and butter and boil. Just watch the color to make a syrup or a sauce.
  • How much will I make? A lot. If you're making a syrup, three cups. The longer you cook it, the less you'll have.
  • How long will it keep? Store the leftovers in the refrigerator and use it within two or three weeks. Reheat it in the microwave. It's perfect every time.

This should be on your bucket list. Try it.

You have to try it. If you're a caramel lover, you'll go nuts. If you don't like the sweet, fruity taste of pears, maybe not so much.  

I love caramel apples and eat the apple with the caramel.  If you eat the two separately, this may not be your favorite.  But if you don't like it, we'll give you your money back.

If you're looking for a caramel sauce, cook it until it turns brown. The pear will still come through, but depending on how long you cook it, it's a caramel sauce or a pear syrup.

It’s spiced, you so you have to like that flavor and it was nice to try to try it but I wouldn’t buy it.

Carmel pear syrup

Definitely pear tasting, not so much Carmel, which I was hoping for the opposite. Easy to make. Would classify as pear syrup.
