Lemongrass in Candies and Confections

Recipe: Lemongrass-Infused Caramel


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, bruised and chopped
  • Pinch of salt


Prepare the Lemongrass-Infused Cream: In a small saucepan, combine the heavy cream and chopped lemongrass. Heat the mixture over low heat until it simmers. Remove from heat and let the lemongrass infuse into the cream for about 15-20 minutes. Strain the cream to remove the lemongrass pieces.

Create the Caramel Base: In a larger saucepan, combine the granulated sugar and water. Cook the mixture over medium heat, swirling occasionally, until it turns a deep amber color. Be careful not to stir the mixture; simply swirl the pan gently.

Add the Lemongrass Cream: Once the caramel reaches the desired color, carefully pour in the lemongrass-infused cream. The mixture will bubble vigorously, so be cautious. Stir the mixture until the caramel and cream are fully combined.

Incorporate Butter and Salt: Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the unsalted butter and a pinch of salt. Stir until the butter is melted and the caramel is smooth and glossy.

Cool and Enjoy: Allow the lemongrass-infused caramel to cool slightly before transferring it to a glass jar or container. Once cooled, you can drizzle it over ice cream, dip apple slices, or simply enjoy it by the spoonful.
