Where to buy Sucre à la crème
I have a friend from South America who fell in love with "Sucre à la crème" and wants to take some back home. I tried making some myself but it really did not turn out well.
I bought some St-Julie brand "Sucre à la crème" at the grocery store and it was good (though not as good as the stuff my mother use to make). I am hoping for even better. Where could I get some of that great sweet stuff in Montreal ,ideally nicely packaged for international travel ?
Here's a recipe that never fails. 1 cup of 35% cream, 2 cups of brown sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. With the candy thermometer wait until it reaches 234 degrees celsius over medium heat and remove to let cool. Once it's pretty cool, whip with the beater for 3 to 5 minutes until it reaches a creamy consistency then put it in the fridge and let it set. Enjoy!
I know for sure that Biscuiterie Oscar sells some. However, I never tried it, so I can't comment on taste/texture.
