                  Salted Caramel<\/strong><\/p>\n

                  Ingredients<\/p>\n

                    \n
                  1. 1 cup\u00a0(200g)\u00a0granulated sugar<\/li>\n
                  2. 6 Tablespoons\u00a0(90g)\u00a0salted butter, room temperature cut up into 6 pieces<\/li>\n
                  3. 1\/2 cup\u00a0(120ml)\u00a0heavy cream, at room temperature<\/li>\n
                  4. 1 teaspoon\u00a0salt<\/li>\n
                  5. 1\/4 teaspoon grated tonka bean<\/li>\n
                  6. 2 tablespoons Tamboo Spiced Rum<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n

                    Method<\/p>\n

                      \n
                    1. Heat granulated sugar in a medium heavy-duty saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly with a high heat resistant rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Sugar will form clumps and eventually melt into a thick brown, amber-colored liquid as you continue to stir. Be careful not to burn it.<\/li>\n
                    2. Once sugar is completely melted, immediately stir in the butter until melted and combined. Be careful in this step because the caramel will bubble rapidly when the butter is added. If you notice the butter separating or if the sugar clumps up, remove from heat and vigorously whisk to combine it again. (If you\u2019re nervous for splatter, wear kitchen gloves. Keep whisking until it comes back together, even if it takes 3-4 minutes. It will eventually\u2013 just keep whisking. Return to heat when it\u2019s combined again.)<\/li>\n
                    3. After the butter has melted and combined with the caramelized sugar, cook for 1 minute without stirring.<\/li>\n
                    4. Very slowly stir in 1\/2 cup of heavy cream. Since the heavy cream is colder than the hot caramel, the mixture will rapidly bubble when added. After all the heavy cream has been added, stop stirring and allow to boil for 1 minute. It will rise in the pan as it boils.<\/li>\n
                    5. Remove from heat and stir in the salt, grated tonka bean and 2 tablespoons of Tamboo Spiced Rum. Allow to slightly cool down before using. Caramel thickens as it cools.<\/li>\n
                    6. Cover tightly and store for up to 1 month in the refrigerator. Caramel solidifies in the refrigerator. Reheat in the microwave or on the stove to desired consistency.<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n","image":"http:\/\/massystorestt.com\/wp-content\/uploads\/2021\/12\/DSC09594-scaled.jpg","link":"https:\/\/massystorestt.com\/rum-raisin-bread-pudding-w-salted-caramel-tonka-bean-rum-sauce\/"},{"title":"

                          For the second consecutive year, Massy Stores has launched its limited edition pink reusable bags to support the fight against cancer in Trinidad and Tobago. Pink is the internationally recognized signature colour affiliated with<\/span> awareness of breast cancer – a disease which has deeply impacted the lives of many women, and men, in<\/span> Trinidad and Tobago. Massy Stores has pledged to make a donation to the Trinidad and Tobago Cancer Society (TTCS) for every pink bag sold in the month of October.<\/span><\/p>\n

                          \u201cLast year, with the unwavering support from our customers, we were able to raise around $140,000 to give back to the TTCS who used the funds to purchase an ultrasound machine, along with other corporate partners.\u00a0 That\u2019s the power of personal action!\u00a0 The simple act of purchasing the pink bag produced a very tangible result in the fight against cancer.\u00a0 We all know early detection is key for the survival of women.\u00a0 Many women serve as the heads of households and we want to play a part in ensuring that they can continue to live full lives,\u201d commented Roxane de Freitas, CEO, Massy Stores.<\/span><\/p>\n

                          \u201cIn addition to mobilizing support for the TTCS, Massy Stores plays an essential role in helping people live healthier lifestyles through the quality of food that we sell and promoting environmental protection with our reusable bags. These initiatives are part of our holistic approach in creating a healthier population\u201d she added.<\/span><\/p>\n

                          Commenting on the partnership with Massy Stores, Chairwoman of the TTCS, Dr. Asante Le Blanc gave some insight on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the institution and its ability to support men and women of Trinidad and Tobago when it comes to Cancer Education, Advocacy, Screening and Palliative care.<\/span><\/p>\n

                          \u201cOver the last two years, cancer victims who are among our country\u2019s most vulnerable, faced many challenges.\u00a0 Cancer has not been deferred by the pandemic, therefore we need to adapt to the environment and find new ways of providing support for this high-risk community as well as continued promotion of healthier lifestyles and screening to allow for early detection.\u00a0 We have to continue to meet the challenges and continue to provide health equity for all in Trinidad and Tobago, when it comes to screening and support of Cancer patients, survivors and their families and caregivers.\u201d<\/span><\/p>\n

                          The limited-edition pink bags will be sold at $10.00 per bag at all Massy Stores locations until October 31, 2021.<\/span><\/p>\n
