A quick and easy way to cover fruit or any other ingredient with a decadent layer of caramel.




Ingredients for 4 people


1 lb. sugar
7 oz. corn syrup
7 tbsp. water
fruit to caramelize


Preparation

1
Put the water, sugar and corn syrup into a small saucepan and place on the heat and cook until you have a uniform mixture.

2
During cooking, clean the sides of the pot with a brush to keep the sugar from burning. Do not stir the mixture while it is cooking or you may interrupt the crystallization process.

3
Instead, shake the pan to allow for the caramel to cook evenly. If you have a candy thermometer, bring the caramel up to 150°C or 300°F. If not, cook until amber in color.

4
Then, remove the pan from the heat and place what you want to caramelize on a toothpick. Dip it in the liquid caramel, turning it so that it is evenly covered.

5
Work as quickly as possible so that the sugar doesn’t cool down and crystalize. Remove the food from the saucepan and let the excess caramel drip off.

6
Place caramelized ingredients on a sheet of parchment paper to cool. When caramelizing fresh fruit, remember that it contains water and may cause the sugar to melt too quickly.

7
Once the fruit is cool, caramelized fruit can be stored in a sealed container.
