Step-By-Step Guide On How to Caramelize Sugar


Caramelizing sugar is a simple process that can transform an ordinary sweet treat into something truly special. Swirl it into cheesecake or pumpkin pie to put it over the top. The possibilities are endless when you unlock the rich, buttery sweetness of homemade caramel.


2 cups of white,   Granulated sugar 400 g,   Half a cup of 240 ml of water   A quarter teaspoon (1 ml) of lemon juice or cream of tartar.


Begin by combining 1 cup of granulated white sugar with 1/4 cup of water in a medium saucepan. Stir to thoroughly dissolve the sugar.


Add 1-2 tablespoons of light corn syrup if you want to prevent crystallization.


Place the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring the mixture to a boil without stirring. Once it reaches a boil, stop stirring completely. Let it continue boiling, undisturbed, until it turns a golden amber colour, about 5-7 minutes.


Allow it to cook just a bit longer until it reaches the desired shade - anywhere from light golden to dark amber. But take care not to let it burn!


Once it reaches the perfect colour, immediately remove the pan from the heat so the caramel stops cooking.
