I made my 2nd carob recipe yesterday…carob sauce. With all of this good homemade ice cream and some good cream to use up it was the perfect fit. Plus it was something simple for Rebecca to help with. This was very easy to make. And tastes so good!!! We all had some on ice cream last night for a special 4th of July dessert. Yum! This is another Nourishing Traditions recipe. And a great way to swap carob for cocoa in your diet. A healthy, tastey treat.

Carob Sauce
Makes 2 1/2 cups

2/3 cup carob powder
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. chocolate extract (optional) (I didn’t add this…still tastes plenty chocolatey)
pinch of salt
1 cup cream, not ultrapasteurized

Place all ingredients in the top half of a double boiler.

Cook gently, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon, until well amalgamated (all blended well :).

    I should try this recipe sometime. I made the hot fudge recipe from your mom that you usually make, too, with carob powder instead of the cocoa a week or two ago. Its delicious!

    Although I’m having a heck of a time finding non-UP cream. They don’t have any non-UP even at the health food stores in Lansing. I know I can get it at Westwind Milling (where I pick up my CSA orders), but I haven’t put in a CSA order in awhile. And I haven’t been down to Trader Joes or Whole Foods to look for it.

    Ok, are my comments not going through?? I just went through soooo many posts and left lots of comments! I don’t see them, though… GRRRR

    I guess it didn’t pop the old ones up for this post like the mayo post… this looks great! I’ll have to try this recipe out. I made your mom’s hot fudge sauce with carob powder a week or two ago and its awesome! I’m having a hard time finding non-UP cream, though… I need to get to Trader Joes and Whole Foods to see what they have, but the health food stores in Lansing don’t have it. I know I can get it at Westwind Milling where I pick up my CSA… I just need to get out there… the stuff they have is local, but really expensive!

    Thanks for all the comments, Sara 🙂 I hate how tough it is to get cream that isn’t UP. Makes you wonder about the quality of it when it has to be UP. I’m thankful I can get good stuff at Harvest Health. It’s from a local organic dairy. They also sell milk at HH. But it’s way too expensive (over $4 for 1/2 gallon!). Otherwise I’d buy it. But I can splurge once in a while on their cream. Really makes a difference in how good the ice cream tastes.
