|Put 1/3 cup water and 1 and 1/2 cup sugar in pan on low. Stir well only once. |
Do not stir again.
|Bring it to a boil. This will take 5 to 8 minutes.|
|Turn the heat to medium and shake the pan occassionally.|
No stirring. Can you see it starting to
turn the slightest bit brown?
|let it turn a beautiful brown color. But not black. |
It burns easy. You have to watch it.
It will take another 8 mnutes or so.
But stay in the kitchen.
This isnt the time to wander off.
|Measure 1 1/4 cup heavy cream.|
|Take hot sugar off fire and slowly add. Dont panic. |
It'll bubble up and splatter and
then the sugar will form a hard ball.
|Now its time to stir.|
|Put it back on low heat and stir for two minutes. |
If you screw it up, dont worry.
Throw it out and
start all over. Sometimes I have
to try three times before I get it done.
|After its smooth, take it off heat. It thickens as it cools.|
|Add a little sea salt.|
