Ingredients for Caramel Syrup
This make about 1 and 1\2 cups
- 1 cup White Sugar
- 1 cup boiling water
1. Pour the sugar into a heavy bottomed pan or pot with high sides.
Heat up the sugar on medium heat, until the sugar melts completely and changes from white to light golden brown caramel.
Note: don't stir it until the sugar has melted completely.
2. Now, gradually pour in the boiling water.
The caramel will foam and bubble a bit, wait until the bubbling goes down, then stir well with a wooden spoon and continue to cook for 3 minutes or until the water incorporates with the syrup.
3. Put off the heat and leave to cool,then pour into a glass jar, seal and store in the fridge or use for whatever recipe you desire.
Note: the caramel syrup will thicken further when it cools.
