Lee Beske


1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1 stick butter, cut up
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
Pinch of salt

Pour sugar into a small saucepan. Pour water evenly on top of the sugar. With stove on medium-high heat, hold saucepan handle and swirl around until sugar is dissolved all the way. Once dissolved, turn heat to high, cover pan and boil for 2 minutes.
Remove cover and continue to boil until syrup turns brown around the edges and turns nice amber color.
Now, you want to remove from heat and whisk in pieces of butter until all butter is melted and mixed in. Be careful VERY HOT!! When you put the butter in, the syrup will bubble and start to foam up.
Once butter is combined, stir in the cream. If mixture gets lumpy, place back on heat until smooth. Stir in vanilla and cream.
This stuff is like molten lava. Be careful before putting in your mouth! It will be hard to resist temptation, but wait a bit before tasting!
Store in a mason jar in the refrigerator. This makes enough for 1 pint.
