yields 1 cup
1 cup (200 grams) granulated sugar
6 Tablespoons (90grams) salted butter, room temp and cut into pieces
1/2 cup (120ml) heavy cream
1/2 tsp salt
Heat granulated sugar in a medium heavy bottomed sauce pan over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
Sugar will slowly start to melt and form clumps, it will eventually turn an amber colour and melt completely. KEEP STIRRING. Always. The sugar can burn quickly.
Once the sugar is melted, add the butter. The caramel mixture will bubble up and spit butter, be careful..
Stir butter until completely melted, about 2 minutes. Sometimes a whisk work better at this stage.
Slowly drizzle the cream over the mixtures while stirring. Once all combined continue to boil for 1-2 minutes, while stirring.
Remove from heat and add salt.
Pour into a jar and allow to cool.
Store in Refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Devour as needed.
