Salty Caramel Sauce.

This is an adaption of Alistair and Tenna Wise's recipe.  It is taken from their amazing book, Sweet Envy.  I have Made  it 3 time in the last couple of weeks and it just disappears. What I like about the recipe is that it is  a true caramel that is first made in a pan on the stove.  So you can control the color and therefore the depth of Flavour. Each time I have made it I have ended up with sticky lumps of caramel in the bottom of the pan.   Not to worry,  just 1 minute, speed 7 in TMX and it is perfect. I am sure that this is my problem and not the recipe.

400g caster sugar
160 liquid glucose
60g butter
10 g sea salt flakes
600 most thin pouring cream. ( I used 400g of thickened great and 200g milk. )

Place sugar and glucose in a large thick based saucepan, over medium heat and heat and stir until sugar is de solved.
Up heat to caramalise the sugar to a nice rich brown.
Add butter and salt and stir until incorporated.  Careful , it may spit.
Remove from stove and add cream and milk in 3 additions.  Stir well.
Tip into TMX bowl and mix for 1 minute at speed 7.
Pour into sterile jars and cool.

When cold stir through ice cream and with extra on the side.
Good over waffles with ice cream.
Make ideal Xmas gift.
