A jar of caramel sauce in your fridge is the gift that keeps on giving. Drizzle it over the ice-cream or a pie, add a spoonful to your morning oatmeal, use it as a dip for slice of fruits, stir it into cocoa - need I go on?
- Granulated sugar -1 cup
- Water - 1/2 cup
- Heavy cream - 3/4 cup
- Unsalted butter - 2 tbsp
- Salt - 1/4 tsp
- Vanilla extract - 1/2 tsp
1. In a heavy bottomed non-stick pan, combine sugar and water. Cook over medium low heat until the sugar dissolves without stirring.
2. Just swirl the pan around. Once the sugar has dissolved, turn the heat to medium high and let it bubble away until it turns a deep brown color.
3. Turn the heat down to low and add the warm heavy cream slowly. Keep whisking until everything is combined and turn the heat off.
