Foolproof Alton Brown Recipe for Caramel Sauce

Ingredients

2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup water
1 cup heavy cream
Equipment: Heavy saucepan, silicone spatula, and candy thermometer (optional)

Directions

  1. Combine sugar, corn syrup, cream of tartar, and water into a 2-quart saucepan on high heat, and stir with silicone spatula.
  2. When sugar has dissolved, insert candy thermometer, and bring mixture to a boil.
  3. Turn down to medium heat once temperature reads 230ºF, or has reached the soft-ball candy stage and is a light caramel color.
  4. When temperature has reached 300ºF, approximately five minutes later, stir mixture with silicone spatula to ensure sugar solution will heat evenly.
  5. At 340ºF, when the solution is a dark reddish-brown, immediately turn off heat, remove the thermometer, pour in heavy cream, and stand back to avoid any splatters.
  6. Once the mixture calms down, return heat back to medium, and continue cooking for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Remove from heat and allow to cool thoroughly before transferring to any containers. To enjoy warm, microwave in heatsafe container for 30 seconds, or submerge jar in warm water.

Makes approximately 2 cups.
