Salted caramel

Caramel, oh caramel, how sweet are thee? As silky smooth as satin, as pleasurable as glee. Those who don’t have thou on their plate yet, shalt never have their table set! 

Salted caramel

Serves: 750ml (3 cups)
Cooking Time: 25 mins


  • 660g white sugar
  • 250ml (1 cup) water
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) sea salt
  • 110g butter
  • 375ml (1 ½ cups) fresh cream



Place the sugar and water in a medium saucepan over low heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved (do not stir until the syrup boils). Place a sugar thermometer in the saucepan and increase the heat to high. Bring to a boil and cook, 15 – 20 minutes, without stirring until the temperature reaches 150*C and the mixture is caramel in colour.


Remove from heat and, working quickly, add the salt, butter and cream. Whisk to combine. Return to the heat and cook, a further 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.
