Who would have thought – adding little salt in your usual caramel changes everything in this world. OK not world, but it changes everything for caramel lovers at least. Like me, for instance. After the splish and splash of bubbling caramel on the pan, put some salt and that’s it. Salted caramel would have happened. Details below for half cup caramel.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup cold salted butter
1 cup fresh cream
2 tsp salt
1. In a nonstick pan melt sugar till it turns amber colour. Basically completely melted and brown.
2. Drop the butter and mix quickly.
3. After butter melts, add cream. Now you have to work quickly with this because you will be in the splash zone and this is not a water park. Mix quickly and let it bubble for a minute.
4. Take it off the heat and add salt.
This should make more sense:
