If you’ve ever had Salted Caramel, you already know how rich and delicious it is. Its depth of flavor can make it seem complicated to make, but really it’s just five simple ingredients and some time with a delicate hand.
I always make a double batch and keep it in mason jar in my fridge . This liquid gold is great for cakes, ice cream, coffee drinks and even to dip fruit in. Its so damn good that you will never want to buy store bought again.
Some recipes call for water but I don’t like using water because, I don’t have good luck with it and I don’t like the crystals it creates.
Once placing sugar in the pan, slowly let the sugar melt. Take your time and be very gentle. Do NOT move far away. Its best to keep a very close eye. As the sugar is melting, it can go from the perfect Amber color to burnt in a matter of seconds.
Enjoy and put that ISH on everything !!!
