Recipe For Salted Caramel

I am probably years behind the trend of making salted caramel. But until this weekend I really had no reason to make salted caramel. I was also not sure how it would work with fructose and so I have really not bothered to make it. Now that I have, it will always be in my fridge. Salted caramel making needs patience – something I am short of. But as I had so many other things to make this weekend, I could leave the fructose on glucose on the stove to do it thing while I measured out the ingredients for the other recipes I was making. I love the salt aspect of the caramel as it cuts through anything that is overly sweet. I left it in the pot overnight, out on the kitchen counter as I did not know if it would harden or not, and I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered that it had remained runny. I caught Dave lifting the spoon out of it a few times – he caught some of the dripping salted caramel off the spoon and taste tested it often during the evening. I used my salted caramel in an ice cream (recipe to follow) and it adds such a wonderful dimension. I put a small jar into the fridge and if it is still there when we get back from overseas I might try and make a cake with it.

  4. Liquid glucose is a new ingredient to me. It wasn’t something I grew up with in Canada, but I’m interested to try it. I do love salted caramel very much. I especially like with roasted pears and toasted walnuts. 🙂

  5. This has been a traditional recipe on the Ile de Re and in the Vendee for a long time. It’s one of my favourite ice cream flavours. The supermarkets sell bottles of very good salted caramel sauce or one can just buy a bag of salted caramels and melt them:)
