While we love this sauce on our ice creams, it can also be used as a dipping sauce for fruit and cake.
Caramel Sauce - 3/4 Cup
¾ cup granulated sugar
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ cup water (enough so that the consistency when mixed with the sugar and salt is similar to wet sand)
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
¹∕³ cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch cubes
In a medium, 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). Keep a close eye on the caramel sauce as it can burn easily. Once the sugar mixture has a light amber color, take it off the stove and slowly and carefully 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. Use immediately, or keep warm over a pot of warm water.

Servings: Makes about ¾ cup
