I made some dessert sauce this weekend, it tastes just like creme brulee. (they sell something like this at Le Gourmet Chef, but alas I moved to England this year and can't get it anymore Embarrassed) So, I had to improvise. 

I want to give this away as holiday gifts in cute little glass jars but I'm not sure how to go about the canning process...how long would these keep once sealed? does anyone know of a good canning tutorial on the net? do i have to add any preservatives?, etc. help would be appreciated.

1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
2 tablespoons water
3/4 cup heavy cream/double cream
1 tsp cinnamon

Using a wooden spoon, combine sugar and water in a large saucepan over a high heat, stirring constantly.  Use a dampened pastry brush to brush any stray sugar particles off the sides of the pan.
Continue to stir until mixture forms a caramel like mixture of darkened amber color.  Remove from heat and GRADUALLY add cream, stirring like a madwoman after each addition. Add cinnamon and return to the heat for one minute.  Keep on stirring
Make sure that you do not leave it on the heat longer than a minute.
Bon appetit.

Search the threads here on Craftster.  There's a lot of info on canning if you look around.

Ooooh.. that sounds super-yummy!

Since the recipe is basically just sweetened cream, I think your only option is to keep refrigerated at all times.  You could seal it up in pretty glass jars using a basic canning process, but make sure to keep it cool and to include a note to the giftee to let them know they should refrigerate it right away.

Home canning equipment can't be used to reliably pasteurize a dairy product, and definitely wouldn't be able to replicate UHT process to make it shelf-stable.  By refrigerating, you should be okay to store for up to 1 month from the date it's made.

When it comes to food for gifts, it's best to play it safe rather than give someone an all-expenses paid trip to the emergency room. Tongue
