The salty version of this sweet treat has been very popular recently.
Sweet caramel is not unusual, whereas the salty one arouses interest and suspicion 🙂
It should not. A touch of salt makes the caramel flavor unique.
Salty caramel works great as a sauce for cakes, ice creams, desserts. I used it as a sauce for doughnuts that I recently baked.
Ingredients for caramel.
- 1 cup of caster sugar
- 60 g of salty butter
- 1/2 cup of double cream
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
How to prepare salty caramel.
Pour the sugar into the pot and add water. Cook until the sugar starts caramelising ; approx. 4 minutes. After that, remove the pot from the heat and add the butter, pour the cream and add salt. Mix and put it back on the heat, boil for another 3 minutes.
Good to know when making caramel.
Do not keep the caramel on the heat for too long as its texture can become too hard and it will not be usable as a sauce.
