Salted caramel is one of those things that our family has agreed to disagree about. Hubby wasn't impressed. I think it's one of the yummiest things I've discovered in recent years. The boys know it's got sugar in it -- in their book, that's enough.
So when I saw the recipes on Pinterest, the only thing that stopped me from starting a batch right away was our lack of whipping cream. A couple of days later, I was ready to give it a try. It tasted wonderful, but it didn't set so that I could cut it into pieces. A fair amount was eaten with a spoon or licked off of the fingertips of passing boys before I finally gave up and tossed it. I used the candy thermometer and followed the directions, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

Sounds bad, doesn't it? But at 200 yards a skein, it's "only" 30 skeins. And 11 of those are for Teenage Daughter's sweater.
