My dad has been raving about the wonders of Mayfield® ice cream for years. Once it became widely available around here, I had to try it for myself.
I picked up some Mayfield® Homemade Vanilla and Moose Tracks ice cream at my local Walmart. It’s a new item that you can find in the frozen dessert aisle.
Mayfield® started making ice cream in 1923, and they use fresh cream from their own dairy (with no artificial growth hormones) to make their many flavors of ice cream.
If you love Mayfield® ice cream too, you’re going to want to join the Mayfield Flavor Family. When you become a Mayfield Flavor Fan, you’ll be the first to hear about new flavors and special offers.
It’s a way to join the Mayfield® tradition of southern hospitality and to share the love of Mayfield® ice cream with your family and friends.
Tips for Making Salted Caramel Sauce
- As with any recipe with only a few ingredients, quality is crucial. Fresh butter and fresh cream are essential. When dairy products have been kicking around the refrigerator for too long or are approaching their expiration date, they may have picked up unwanted fridge flavors.
- You are adding your own salt, so use unsalted butter.
- In a pinch, light cream will work in lieu of heavy cream, but milk will not.
- Once the salted caramel sauce has cooled to room temperature, you can store it in the fridge. It will firm up like soft candy, but will easily become pourable again with gentle reheating.
Salted Caramel Sauce Recipe
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 pinch sea salt
Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan. Heat over medium heat and stir until the sugar dissolves.
Bring to a rapid boil for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and let cool until warm, but not hot, to serve. To store, let cool to room temperature, then store airtight in the refrigerator.
Mayfield® ice cream is new at Walmart and can be found in the ice cream section of the frozen foods.
