Rich golden caramelized honey sauce infused with the flavors of rich dark brown sugar, vanilla, chunky pieces of toasted walnuts and golden coins of crystallized ginger. Tastes wonderful drizzled over French toast or waffles!

Why Try? Caramelizing honey adds rich deep flavor notes to this chunky walnut ginger honey sauce. Serve drizzled over fresh fruit salad or yogurt, swirl into oatmeal or granola, drizzle over pound cake, spoon over vanilla ice cream or spread on toasted thick sliced breakfast bread or warm muffins.

Slow caramelizing honey with brown sugar adds rich deep flavor to this sauce. This recipe also tastes great prepared with toasted pecans.
