Miso Butterscotch Sauce

This butterscotch sauce is like none you’ve had before — it’s sweet, but slightly salty with a touch of umami essence — your ice cream is about to get real happy. Butterscotch sauce benefits from salt, too. Like salted caramel, it keeps the sauce from becoming saccharine sweet — it’s perfectly balanced.

Heat cream and butter in a saucepan over low, stirring occasionally, until butter melts.

Whisk in brown sugar and miso until dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high and bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer butterscotch until thickened and shiny, about 10 minutes.

Off heat, whisk in vanilla, then transfer sauce to a glass measuring cup and cool to room temperature. Store sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator; warm before using.
