Fleur de sel caramels and #InaFriday
I made Ina’s Fleur de sel Caramels for Ina Friday this month. They were delicious, but I have to tell you, if you do not have a candy thermometer, don’t even think about making these. You need to get your caramel to a firm ball stage and you need a thermometer for that. A few degrees difference and you could end up with a caramel sauce instead of a caramel. I know that the recipe says it takes 10 minutes to get it to firm ball stage, double that. It took me from 20-30 minutes to get there. It was however so worth the fuss. Everyone thinks I am a rock star for making this.
