▪ 1 cup sugar
▪ 1 cup water
▪ 1 tablespoon butter
▪ ½ cup heavy whipping cream (you can also use milk, even skim milk – it won’t be as decadent, but it will help your waist line)
▪ Using a heavy sauce pan, add 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar. ▪ Place on medium high heat and stir constantly (using a wooden spoon) until all the water dissolves and it begins to boil. ▪ After it begins to boil do not stir. ▪ This next part takes the longest! Wait until the sugar has reached a dark amber color. The lighter the color the less caramel flavor-if you like a lighter caramel don’t wait quite as long. ▪ Once the sugar has reached a dark amber, remove from heat. ▪ Add 1 tablespoon butter, stir constantly. ▪ Add ½ cup heavy cream-the mixture will foam up. ▪ Continue stirring until mixture is smooth. ▪ Pour mixture in glass jars and store in refrigerator. We love it on ice cream, in our morning coffee, in apple cider, dip for apples, on apple pie, apple cake, or really just by the spoonful!!!
