  • Put the sugar, butter and honey in a pan and set over medium heat. Let the sugar melt without stirring. You may swirl the pan though to help the process along.
  • Why no stirring? Because if you disturb the sugar while caramelizing, crystals will form and you won’t have a smooth sauce.
  • When the sugar has melted, pour in the cream. You may stir using a wooden spoon (a metal spoon will cause a reaction that, again, will result in the formation of crystals).
  • Continue cooking just until bubbly.
  • Pour the salted caramel into a wide-mouthed bottle or jar, cover loosely and cool.
