If there is one thing I crave as the weather gets cooler it’s caramel. Creamy, rich, smooth and full of delicious. A few days ago I was in the kitchen watching Gilmore Girls on my phone and decided to make caramel sauce. I blame Sookie. I have to admit, I’ve never had much luck making caramel. Last year I tried to make caramels at Christmas and they ended up like hard candies. Good, but wrong. For this Salted Caramel Sauce I used Two Peas and Their Pods recipe. The only change I made was that I only used about a teaspoon of fresh cracked salt instead of a tablespoon of flaked salt and it was plenty. As usual I had some difficulties. Sugar stuck to the corner edge of the pan and some stayed in clumps… I thought the butter would never whisk in, but it did. And after whisking in the cream I just poured the sauce through a fine strainer and into a big ceramic bowl to cool before pouring into jars.
