Since all caramel I have ever seen is made with corn syrup, I knew it was time to make my own. So that is what me and my mother did: We made caramel apples.
Our caramel didn't get hot enough so it came out very light, but still good, nonetheless.
Here is our recipe:
2/3 cup unrefined cane sugar
1/2 cup honey
2 dashes of vanilla
4 tablespoons of butter
Wooden or bamboo spoon
Popsicle sticks or bamboo skewers for the apples
Wax paper or parchment paper
1.Lay out wax paper. Put Popsicle stick or bamboo skewer in each apple.
2. In a small pot, mix butter, sugar, honey together and simmer. Once it starts to bubble around the edges, start to stir constantly. Stir for two minutes. Take off heat and add vanilla and be careful not to burn yourself!
3. To coat the apples, hold apple over pot and use the spoon to coat apple with caramel. Lay coated apple on wax paper to harden.
