Valerie Gordon created this caramel sauce with gray sea salt to pour on top of a luscious vanilla bean cake, but it's also delicious over ice cream or with fruit like apple slices.     More Caramel Recipes  

How to Make It

Step

In a microwave-safe cup, combine the cream and corn syrup. In a medium, wide saucepan, spread the sugar in an even layer. Cook over moderate heat, without stirring, until it begins to caramelize. Swirl the pan and stir to incorporate the caramelized sugar. At this point, microwave the cream mixture at high power for 2 minutes. Continue cooking the sugar until a medium-amber caramel forms, about 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully add the hot cream, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Return the caramel to low heat and add the butter and salt, stirring until any hardened caramel is melted. Transfer the caramel to a heatproof glass jar and let cool.

Make Ahead

The sauce can be refrigerated for up to 1 month. Rewarm before serving.
