FOOLPROOF, AMAZING, TO-DIE-FOR, HOMEMADE SALTED CARAMEL
IF YOU HAVEN'T TRIED THIS RECIPE FROM MY BLOG YET, YOU ARE MISSING OUT. NO CANDY THERMOMETER REQUIRED!!! HAVE I PIQUED YOUR CURIOSITY NOWWWW? SUPER SIMPLE AND DELICIOUS! GIVE IT A TRY. I HAVE ADDED SOME TIPS BELOW TO HELP MAKE THIS EASY FOR YOU!!
SALTED CARAMEL RECIPES-
2 cups sugar
1 2/3 cups heavy cream
2 Tbsp salted butter
3/4 tsp coarse sea salt
Method to make the caramel sauce:
1. Spread the sugar in an even layer in a large metal pot, at least 6 quarts. Set over a moderate heat and cook without stirring, until the sugar near the edge just starts to liquefy.
2. Use a wooden spoon and begin stirring, encouraging the melted sugar around the edges toward the center, delicately stirring up any sugar melting on the bottom as well. The sugar will start to look pebbly as it cooks, but keep going until it is melted completely and an amber color. If you think it is cooking too fast, lower the heat and keep stirring. Be patient.
3. Continue to cook until the sugar turns deep brown. Once brown, take it off of the heat!!!!
4. Time to add the cream but here is my trick....only add a DROP at a time and stir, stir, stir. This will eliminate the seizing of your caramel and you will love me for this trick. Keep adding a drop at a time and stirring until all of the cream is mixed in. Be patient...you have a lot of cream so this will take a few minutes. Once smooth, add butter and salt. Let cool. Will store in fridge up to one month. HA! As if it will last that long...ever!!!! TOO delicious!!
