Would you like to know how to make your very own home made caramel for all your caramel needs?
You can either pour only sugar in a heavy bottomed pan and heat until it melts, being very careful not to let it progress beyond "golden" to "burnt," or you can mix the sugar with a little bit of water and boil that together.
I think it's a little easier to mix the sugar with the water because the sugar doesn't clump that way.
When the caramel turns golden, add a bit of whipped cream and butter, stirring all the while and being very careful not to get burned. This stuff is HOT. Liquified sugar- which sticks to you- can give you second degree burns.
