This latin caramel sauce is adapted from a recipe by Rafael Palomino of sonora restaurant in New York City. Use it over ice cream, on waffles, a glaze for bananas or cakes, or as a substitute for honey in baking recipes. Haagen-Dazs markets this as an ice cream flavor and Starbucks as one of its non-coffee flavors for ice cream.
