Citrus Caramel Sauce

  • In a small pot, add cream, butter, zests from fruit and a pinch of salt. Simmer for about 10 minutes to infuse the flavors.
  • In a separate pot over medium high heat, add sugar, cooking down into a golden brown caramel base. Stir frequently to prevent burning.
  • Remove from heat and immediately add half the infused cream, whisking to deglaze the pan. Slowly add the remaining cream mixture to incorporate.
  • Strain the caramel mixture through a metal sieve to remove the zest.
  • Serve rice pudding warm or cold, topping with warm caramel sauce as desired. Garnish with fresh lemon and orange zest. Refrigerate any leftovers.
