Whipped Cream and Salted Whiskey Caramel Sauce

Salted Caramel Whiskey Sauce
(this can't be canned)

(I tripled the recipe)
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 sugar
1 1/2 tablespoon whiskey, divided
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 tablespoon water
3 tablespoons salted butter
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon vanilla extra

Stir sugar, 1 tablespoon whiskey, corn syrup, and 1 tablespoon water in a medium deep saucepan over medium-low heat until sugar dissolves.
Increase heat, bring to a boil without stirring, and cook, occasionally swirling pan and brushing down sides with a wet pastry brush, until sugar is deep amber in color, 6–8 minutes. Remove caramel from heat; whisk in remaining 1/4 cup cream, butter, and salt (mixture will bubble vigorously).
Let cool for 5 minutes; whisk in the remaining 1/2 Tbsp. whiskey and vanilla.Let the whiskey caramel cool slightly.

Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Whipped Cream Frosting:
Place your mixing bowl and wire whisk in the freezer for about 15-30 minutes.
Then place all the ingredients in the cold bowl and beat just until stiff peaks form.
If not using immediately, cover and refrigerate. Makes about 2 cups (480 ml) whipped cream.

Tip: Using refrigerated cream helps produce stiff peaks, but it's important to chill your mixing bowl and beaters. When cream is whipped at a lower temperature, fat globules stick together to support the foam created by whipping in a large amount of tiny air bubbles. Therefore, beating cream at a cooler temperature will produce the largest amount of volume. If you're using a stand mixer or hand mixer, keep an eye on your speed. It's tempting to go fast, but keeping the speed between medium and medium-high helps make sure you don't overshoot that perfect soft billowy stage and start going grainy.

Diced Apples with pecan praline sauce

6 large Granny Smith Apples- cored, peeled and diced

Cube apples

Cool gadget

Boil diced apples for 1 minute. Drain but keep fruit covered in a bowl.

Praline Syrup

2 cups corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup lightly packed dark brown sugar
1 cups pecan pieces
1/2 t. vanilla

I tripled the recipe.

Prepare canner, jars, and lids. In a stainless steel saucepan, combine corn syrup, sugar, and water. Heat over medium head stirring till dissolved. Increase heat and bring to a boil for one minute. Reduce heat and stir in pecans and vanilla. Boil gently, stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and fold in apples.

Ladle hot syrup into hot jars, leaving 1/2" headspace. Remove air bubbles.  Wipe rim, add lid and rings and process in water bath for 15 minutes at a full boil. Wait 5 minutes, remove and place on dishtowel overnight undisturbed.

The next day remove rings and clean jars and label with recipe name and date. Store in a cool, dry, and dark place.  This recipe tripled will make 8 pint size jars
