Homemade Caramel

Very good over the homemade vanilla ice cream 
This jar was handy, it is too big for this amount.  As you can see, it does make quite a bit of caramel.

One cup of sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Keep stirring, the sugar will begin to clump.

See, it is clumping!

Beginning to melt now!

Stir in 6 tablespoons butter cut into small pieces when the sugar is all melted and amber.

Keep stirring, I promise your arm won't fall off!

Keep stirring!

Now drizzle in the 1/2 cup heavy cream (whipping cream)

Stir in the salt, if desired. I wish I'd left it out of mine. 


1 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter (salted or unsalted) cut into small pieces
1/2 cup heavy cream (whipping cream)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt optional


Heat the sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, stir constantly with a wooden spoon
Sugar will begin to form clumps then melt into thick amber liquid. Don't burn it, keep stirring
When sugar is completely melted, stir in the butter. This will bubble rapidly and may splash you, so be careful!
Stir the butter into the caramel until it is completely incorporated. May take 2-3 minutes
Slowly stir in the cream, stirring while adding.
Boil for one minute, remove from heat, 
Stir in the salt. 

Cool before using.

Serve over ice cream or cake.

Eat it with a spoon!

Store in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks (if it lasts that long!).

Warm slowly before using, place jar in water bath to warm.

This would be good to put into jelly jars and give as gifts at Christmas time. It would be good over homemade cinnamon rolls or coffee cake..... hum.....

I love all y'all❤️
