This is my current obsession. I made some to drizzle over apple pie a couple weeks ago and have been eating it nearly every day ever since. I dip apple slices in it. I eat it by the spoonful. BY THE SPOONFUL. Seriously. It's THAT good.
So, go make some.
Salted Caramel Sauce
Makes about 1 cup
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 teaspoon Kosher salt (or more to taste)
- Put the sugar, water & corn syrup in a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan and stir just to combine.
- Heat over medium-high heat, without stirring, until the caramel turns deep amber, 5-10 minutes. (If it’s coloring unevenly, swirl the pan as needed to blend.) Lower the heat & slowly add the cream & butter. Stir to smooth & remove the pan from heat.
- Stir in the salt. Taste. Add more salt, if desired.
This sauce is ready to eat warm but also stores well in the refrigerator (just put into a covered container). It stays a soft, dip-able consistency...which makes it easy to eat BY THE SPOONFUL.
