Caramel Sauce

Yield Makes 4 cups


  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups whipping cream

How to Make It

  1. Pour sugar into a heavy 5-quart saucepan. Stir in 1 cup water. Bring mixture to a boil, and cook, without stirring, 15 to 20 minutes or until it turns a caramel color. Swirl mixture around pan until it turns golden amber in color. Remove from heat, and slowly add cream, stirring constantly with a long wooden spoon. (If caramel begins to clump and harden, return to low heat, and stir until smooth.)
