salted butter caramel

Use a small stainless steel pan,
In case you don’t have a copper pan.

Pour the sugar into the pan over low heat.
Melt the sugar together with a pinch of coarse Guérande sea salt, and
A tablespoon of water.
Do not mix,
Lest you end up with crystals!

When the caramel turns a golden amber color,
Remove from heat, and
Add the butter cut into small dice.
Mix with a wooden spoon.
Return to heat.
Once the caramel is warm again,
Remove from heat, and
Pour the crème fraîche épaisse or mascarpone, and
Mix again.

You will now have a very smooth caramel.

Wait for the caramel to cool to fill the jar.
The caramel will keep up to two weeks in a cool place…
Provided it has not been eaten by then!

- Run your slightly wet fingers or a brush over the sides of the pan,
to prevent sugar crystallization.

- Warm the cream in the microwave oven for 30 seconds
to prevent hot projections as you add it to the caramel.

Delicious over sweet buns
and scones on
Sunday morning!
