I need serious help here!
I'm not good at caramelizing sugar
I just dumped my second grainy sugar disaster Sad
Any tips
I watched tons of you tube videos, and read through so many instructions, no caramel to show for it Banging head Banging head

Are you using a food thermometer?

Did you make the one with some water added?

Yup, I boiled the sugar with the water
A thermometer wouldn't help at this point, it for sure didn't reach the right temperature yet
It became grainy before it became even the lightest brown color 😕

Use a heavy good pot. If you happen to have a small cast iron casserole it will be the best. Second pick: casserole/pot stainless steel inside with a copper outside. 3rd: stainless steel pot with aluminium covered bottom.
And watch that casserole/pot like a hawk.

Are you wiping down the sides of the pot with a damp brush? I usually need to do this to stop my sugar from crystalizing

You can do a quick version with honey.

Thanks for your help, ladies
I think this batch is perfect
I tried the dry method and used a wider, shallower pan
I also added some whiskey Wink
Thanks again!
P.S. it has a slight burny taste, but this is IT
