HOMEMADE CARAMEL SAUCE

INGREDIENTS

1 cup ( 200 gr.) sugar

2 tablespoons water

a pinch of salt

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup ( 200gr ) heavy cream

Pour the cream in a small pan and warm it.

Put the sugar and water in a pan with high lids. It should be at least for 5 cups of liquid because the sauce will boil and you want to avoid any painful burns that might occur if you are not careful enough.

Slightly stir it and then leave it to simmer on medium hit. Do not stir it until the sugar is melted and it has the colour you desire for your caramel sauce.

At this point take the pan from the heat and add the butter and the salt while constantly stirring with a wooden spoon.

The sauce will make bubbles, continue stir with the spoon until the butter is completely melted. Add the warm cream at this point and put the pan back on the stove for 2 or 3 minutes.

When the sauce is cold you can put it in a glass jar and keep it in the refrigerator up to 2 months.

Tips:

If it is thick you can warm it and add some milk in the sauce.

You can add half teaspoon pure vanilla extract.

Take the sauce out from the refrigerator at lest an hour before serving or warm it in the microwave.

Juice of 2 lemons

Zest of 2 lemons
