In a medium-size, heavy bottomed saucepan, stir together the sugar, salt, water and corn syrup. Be sure to clean the inside walls of the pan if there is any sugar on the sides (a clean, wet pastry brush works best). Set over medium-low heat and cook until the sugar mixture turns a very light amber color (about 10 to 15 minutes). Once the sugar mixture has come to the light amber color, take off of stove and slowly stir in the cream. After the cream has been incorporated, slowly whisk in the butter, one piece at a time, continually whisking to emulsify until all the butter has been added. Reserve. Preheat the Cuisinart® Griddler® Jr. in the open position to medium. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; toss to coat. Arrange the apples evenly spaced on the preheated Griddler®. Grill the fruit for about 5 to 7 minutes per side. Remove the apples. In individual ice cream dishes, divide the ice cream (½ cup per serving) and apples. Top with the caramel sauce. Serve immediately.
