 I am feeling better and moving faster each day.  My foot is much better.  there is less swelling and pain.  At the worse part of this foot infection I had two speeds, extremely slow or stopped.

This is a combination of several recipes, that I experimented with to achieve just the "right" flavor. A food processor works well for shredding the carrots and cabbage quickly.

Homemade Caramel Sauce Recipe

Alright everyone, this recipe is too good to keep to myself! I love a tablespoon of this added to my coffee and nothing more, or on ice cream, or for dipping apples, the possibilities are endless!
Anyone can make this!

Recipe yields 1 1/2 cups (although I usually double it but its just
as easy to only make a half batch)

1 cup packed brown sugar (I use light brown or golden)
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons butter
Pinch of plain salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Melt butter in pot, mix in brown sugar, cream and salt. Cook over medium-low heat and whisk gently for about 7 minutes or longer if you doubled. I remove the pot from the heat, add vanilla and return to cook for another minute or so to thicken a bit more. Take it off the stove and pour into a jar then pop it into the fridge and VOILA you're done!
