Salty sweet, gooey, decadent caramel is so easy to make, and will outshine any store-bought brand!
While caramel apples, or cookies might come to mind first when you think of Salt Caramel, think again!
It is said that Salt Caramel should be the next brown butter for savory dishes simply because of its classic umami flavor.
Try a little in your next glazed chicken or pork dish. Imagine it on your Thanksgiving sweet potatoes. Add a little bourbon or chili peppers to your salt caramel, and the possibilities are endless. But if cookies are your crave, Chestnut Butter Cookies with Salt Caramel Filling are simply Amazing!
