Yet again, another tasty treasure awaits you on the aisles at FRESH! One of the best parts of my job is when I get to meet the people that make the products I come to love. I knew instantly that Rick and Teri of N’Dulge were going to be my new best friends. Not just because they happen to own an amazing sweets company but it’s also because they have warm smiles and genuine hearts that want to share handmade confections with the world. N’Dulge was born in the beauty of the Northeast Texas farmland just six miles from the Red River near the small community of Ravenna, Texas.
N’Duldge Honey Carmel is a “caramel experience.” And really when was your last “caramel experience?” Well, that has been too long! Their caramel is made with 100% Texas Wildflower Honey and the finest natural ingredients. It has NO PRESERVATIVES and NO CORN SYRUP. N’Dulge Honey Caramel comes in five remarkable flavors: Original, Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Chipotle, and Cinnamon. I was particularly fond of the Chipotle and Cinnamon.
It is a perfect addition for most any dessert, fruit, gelato and it can also be used as a surprisingly flavorsome marinade.
My new best buds did have a great recipe to share with us. This marinade is delicious for a variety of meats, including Salmon, Shrimp, Chicken and Pork.
2 Tbs N’Dulge Original or Chipotle Honey Caramel
