How to make homemade salted caramel sauce
Begin by placing sugar and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Let it cook without stirring until the sugar dissolves and turns a caramel color.
Next, take the pan off the heat and carefully add the cream. It might bubble a bit, so be cautious.
Now, cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the mixture is smooth.
Afterward, remove it from the heat and add the butter and salt. Stir vigorously until everything blends together smoothly. Pour this delightful sauce into a small jar and let it cool.
As it cools down the sauce hardens slightly. Refrigerate the leftovers.
After refrigerating, you may need to heat it up again as it hardens in the fridge. I like to warm it over bain-marie until it reaches the desired pouring consistency.
There you have it! Your very own homemade caramel sauce, ready to add a touch of sweetness to your favorite treats.
