Making caramel is much much easier than you would think. All you have to do is melt some sugar at a pretty high heat. Ok, there is a little more to it than that, but here is the picture progression and recipe!
Oh, if you need something to put this caramel sauce on, the Apple Torte from last week would be a fantastic with a little drizzle of caramel and a tiny bit of good vanilla ice cream!
Ok, Start by putting about a cup of sugar in a sauce pan over medium high heat. Start stirring!
You will notice the sugar melting and beginning to brown. Keep stirring!!
This is what you want it to look like when completely melted- A nice clear amber-color.
Remove sugar from heat and add about 3 Tbls of Real Butter.
Add 1/2 cup of cream. Stir stir stir until the cream is completely blended!
Ta-Da!! Beautiful caramel sauce. Great on Ice cream, apple pie, or by the spoonful.... ha!
A Big thanks to my hubs for hanging out in the kitchen with me and taking pics!
