The best caramel you ever tasted!
Makes about 2 cups of caramel.
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
2-3 drops lemon juice
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon salt
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar, water, and lemon juice.
Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, then immediately stop stirring and don’t stir until the boiling process is over.
The mixture will turn clear, then begin changing color.
When the mixture is a golden brown color (shown above), remove from heat and slowly whisk in the cream.
Continue whisking until the caramel is completely smooth.
Stir in the salt.
Note: If there are little chunks of sugar that won’t dissolve, just strain the caramel. It will taste exactly the same.
Use as an ice cream topper, an apple dip, and anything else you can think of!
