Caramel making tips:


 


Heavy saucepan:


·        Caramel mainly involves the melting of sugar - thus, when you are doing this you need to have a heavy saucepan. You can melt sugar and butter in a large heavy saucepan much easily than a small one. Moreover, you need to stir it also so that the sugar doesn’t get burnt.


 


Stirring:


·        This is a very important step of caramel making. You have to constantly stir the ingredients while you are melting butter, mixing corn syrup or sugar. If you do not stir well the ingredients will get burnt very quickly and it will be very difficult to manage.Stirring caramel when preparing at home
