Stove Top Caramel Recipe and Social Distancing
Like many of you guys, this past 3 weeks have been so surreal for me. We went from joking about COVID-19 and having mild hesitations of being near people to full on social distancing/quarantine mode. It's been tough but I am so proud of everyone participating.
During this time, its important to remind ourselves that this will eventually end but for now let's enjoy the solitude and treat ourselves every now and then with something comforting and familiar.
And what is more comforting than some home made caramel? Drizzled on ice cream, baked in a caramel apple pie, or spread on toast and topped with bananas. It doesn't matter how you use it, what matters is that this recipe takes literally 10 minutes to make and use only 3 ingredients that you may already have in your fridge or pantry!
When you feel anxious and can't sleep at night, make this caramel and know that we're all in this together.
1 cup of Granulated Sugar
6 tbsp butter (cold or room temp)
1/2 cup of Heavy Cream (also called Whipping Cream)
1. In a sauce pan, cook the sugar in medium heat until it melts and turn golden brown in colour. Stir often while cooking.
2. Once the sugar has melted completely, add the butter and continue stirring until melted.
3. When the butter has melted completely, add the heavy cream and stir until well incorporated. The mixture will bubble up while cooking so be careful not to spill. Cook the mixture for another minute.
4. Take the pan off the burner and transfer the caramel in your preferred heat proof jar or bowl. The caramel will thicken as it cools. Enjoy!
