These homemade Rose Ginger Caramels are delicious and may even help ease nausea.

• 3/4 cup heavy cream
• 3/4 cup dried rose petals
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup honey
• 3 tablespoons butter
• 3 tablespoons candied ginger, chopped fine
• 1 teaspoon sea salt

1. Heat heavy cream in a small saucepan until lightly boiling. Add rose petals, cover and let steep for 15 minutes. Strain.

2. In a medium pot, combine sugar and honey. Heat over medium-high, stirring constantly, until the mixture boils and turns amber.



3. Lower heat and quickly whisk in butter and cream—be careful because the cream will bubble and release hot steam above the pot.

4. Cook the caramel to 248 to 250 degrees. Add ginger and salt 30 seconds before pouring into a loaf pan lined with wax paper.
