The Ardent Homesteader’s Cara-Sel salted caramel sauce is handmade in small batches in the Hudson Valley with just five all-natural ingredients: organic sugar, cream, butter, sea salt, and vanilla. Five ingredients. No preservatives. Insanely delicious.

A few years ago, caramel sauce became Kristen’s signature gift and was often requested by friends and family. After giving some to a wonderful CSA farmer, and he requesting it for sale at the farm, a year of planning, research, and a lot of hard work, The Ardent Homesteader was off the ground and Cara-Sel was born.
